Jamia Millia Islamia Alumni's Humanitarian Efforts in Australia

The Jamia Millia Islamia Alumni Association in Australia, established in January 2020 under the Associations Incorporation Act 2009 of New South Wales, is making notable strides in humanitarian efforts. Dr. Vikrant Kishore, a founding member based in Melbourne, highlights the association's mission to support underprivileged individuals in India affected by COVID-19.

Key Initiatives:

  • Partnership with Helping Hand India: The association collaborates with the NGO Helping Hand India to provide ground-level aid in India. This includes online doctor consultations, oxygen and medicine supply, lab services at doorsteps, and ambulance services.

  • Fundraising Goal: The current target of $10,000 aims to support these initiatives, with plans to extend partnerships with other organizations upon achieving this goal.

  • Support in Melbourne: The association also addresses the needs of individuals in Melbourne who are separated from their families during the crisis. Plans are underway to establish a support group for international students.

Community Voices:

  • Syed Asif Hassan, President, JMI Alumni, Victoria: "Our focus extends beyond fundraising. We aim to continue our outreach and support for those in need, both in India and here in Melbourne."

  • Yasmin Siddiqui, Alumna: Reflecting on the worsening COVID-19 situation in India, she emphasizes the association's commitment to making a difference through this fundraising campaign.

A Collective Effort: The Jamia Millia Islamia Alumni in Victoria demonstrate a strong commitment to supporting the underprivileged, embodying the spirit of global solidarity in these challenging times.
