由於 lockdown, 可能有國際學生會有經濟困難, 政府而家撥款協助有需要嘅學生, 詳請:
The Study NSW team is updating our International Student Welfare Services Hub to ensure information is still accurate.
Foodbank received 1,000+ enquiries from international students over the weekend seeking food hampers. We are working with our 18 education and charity partners across NSW to determine which distribution centres are open during lockdown.
Please direct international students to this page: https://www.study.sydney/student-welfare/food-assistance and encourage them to complete the Foodbank form. Foodbank staff will be in touch to advise the student which is their closest, open distribution centre. In the event a student is in isolation, we can also organise hampers to be couriered to the students however we’re not promoting up front this as we don’t want to overwhelm Foodbank.
We’re also expecting the Australian Government to announce support for those impacted by NSW hotspots and lockdown. International students may be eligible for the following payments:
Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment - New South Wales (if they have been asked to isolate by NSW Health) COVID-19 Disaster Payment (not yet available for NSW however we’re awaiting further announcements)
