IEU supports Nepali people

Kathmandu valley is unimaginably destroyed! It is the most terrible quake we have ever experienced. Chilling cold, plus rain, lack of tents and [continuous] jolts is sufficient to scare people. It has disturbed even rescue work…

At the recent IEU Supporting Our Future Conference, all 32 speakers and presenters were asked if they would agree to donate the money that would have been spent on their ‘speakers’ gifts’ to the APHEDA Nepal Appeal.

APHEDA is the overseas aid agency of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. All speakers agreed on this initiative and the IEU was able to give $1000 directly to the Nepal Appeal.

IEU Officers personally donated $1000 to SOS Children’s Villages International to help Nepali children and families recover from the earthquakes and help rebuild their communities and lives.
