Aiding those in quarantine

Posted by Jaqui O'Donohoe on 20 July 2020
Aiding those in quarantine



The Southbank club recently pulled together with the North Melbourne Rotary Club to support the Somali Women's Development Association (http://www.swdai.org.au/). Part of this community was locked down in the high rise quarantine affected by Covid-19.

Sainab Sheikh, President Elect of the North Melbourne Rotary Club is the founder of the organisation and was driving a project to support those in quarantine by collecting and distributing food and essential supplies.

The club pulled together in less than 24hrs, personally donating $210 which was matched dollar for dollar by the club giving a total donation of $420 to support this organisation and provide much needed relief to those affected by the lockdown.

We look forward to having Sainab Sheikh join our club in the near future to talk more about their projects!
