Somascan Movement raises 6K for communities

With COVID-19 vaccines rolling-out and many countries experiencing a promising decline in cases, it was a shock to witness a new wave of the virus hit India and infect hundreds of thousands of people every day.

Motivated by the concerning rise in COVID cases and deaths, members from Somascan Movement Australia, an Australian registered association and charity based in Chipping Norton, came together for a blitz “BBQ 4 India” fundraiser at St Joseph Catholic Church in Moorebank.

Treating crowds to a hot bacon and egg roll and/or a sausage sizzle, organisers managed to raise almost $6000 in donations which will go on to directly change the lives of many living in struggling communities in Southern India.

“Thanks to the support of generous parishioners, benefactors and friends, we are able to continue our founder’s work during this pandemic by providing education, medical needs and services to those orphaned in India,” said Alison De Sousa, Secretary of Somascan Movement Australia.

Somascan Movement Australia will be hosting a Somascan Missions Dinner Dance to be held on Friday 8 October 2021 at Macquarie Paradiso, Liverpool, NSW.

The night will include a three-course meal, live music and entertainment, raffle prizes, silent auction and live local sketch artist Danny Mulyono.

All funds raised will go directly to various Somascan communities around the world, providing care for those most in need.

Tickets are $100 each or $900 for a table of 10 and can be purchased at
