How We Help
As ZAWA, we remain actively engaged with our community groups online and are working closely with local organisations to see if there is anything we can do to provide a little extra assistance during this time. As we face the challenge of isolation and social distancing, we want to promote and maintain a healthy and connected community.
We can all play a part in supporting each other during these unprecedented and challenging times. We are grateful for your generosity in supporting students and all who have been adversely affected in these unprecedented times.
- If you or someone you know is experiencing hardship or homelessness, help can be found in several local support services that cover food, accommodation and financial aid. You can also complete the Expression of Interest Form and we will assist you.
