AKBCWA provides necessary home essential aid to Korean international students in Perth

April 23, 2020

 

 

 The Australia Korea Business Council of Western Australia provides necessary home essential aid to Korean international students in Perth 

 

There are hundreds of international students from South Korea calling Perth their home. Most students rely on financial assistance from their families but also make up a significant labour force in the hospitality and casual work sector in Perth. 

 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent lockdown laws, many students are struggling to pay for basic daily necessities. There have been reports that some students have faced eviction from their accommodation and others have been unable to return to Korea to be with their families because of financial hardship or travel restrictions. The AKBCWA will be providing 90 home essential kits on a first come first basis this weekend. 

 

Commenting on this initiative, WA Honorary Consul for the Republic of Korea, Ms Fay Duda said “the assistance of AKBCWA is welcome support for vulnerable Korean international students needing basic supplies”. 

 

Tommy Shin, Executive Chairman of the AKBCWA also quoted that “…international students are important to WA and our economy. The AKBCWA supports the WA State Government’s leadership on providing guidance to international students in WA.” 

 

The home essential kits (K-Package) will be distributed by AKBCWA at

1pm Sunday 26th of April, At Top Mart East Perth,323 Hay St, East Perth
