Members of the University community are encouraged to contribute what they can to UNE’s China Earthquake Relief Fund, established to assist those in desperate need following the recent Sichuan earthquake disaster in China.

The University has many staff members and students who have friends, family and associates affected by this terrible event. Your generous donation and support will assist relief workers in rebuilding destroyed villages and areas, and in providing health care, education, and other vital needs.

Donations to the Relief Fund in cash, or by credit card or cheque, will be accepted at the Cashier’s desk, open Monday to Friday between 9 am and 4 pm. The donations received will be handed over to charities working in areas affected by the earthquake by the end of June.

For more information contact Alex Dunn, UNE’s Public Relations Manager, on (02) 6773 2779 (e-mail: adunn@une.edu.au).
