Filipino Australian Association of the Northern Territory Bushfire Fundraiser

As a nation, Australian’s are banding together in the wake of the devastating bushfires impacting our country. This effort includes international students across Australia who are hosting fundraisers, participating as volunteer firefighters and contributing what they can in the wake of this crisis.  

In the Northern Territory, StudyNT Student Ambassador Jurse Salandanan and the Filipino Australian Association of the Northern Territory (FAANT) are also wanting to give back and support those who have been affected by these wildfires in Australia. They will be hosting a fundraiser concert to raise money for the victims and our firefighters. They encourage you all to come down and join in for a good cause!

When: 7:00pm on Saturday 11 January
Where: The Filipino Community Centre, 4 Batten Road, Marrara
