Australian Salesian Mission Overseas Aid Fund (ASMOAF)

Emergency Relief Covid-19

$

With a global presence in over 132 countries, the Salesians of Don Bosco find themselves uniquely placed to enact a co-ordinated response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. Working at the grassroots of communities, Salesians are well placed to provide direct aid and relief which is quick, compassionate and generous to those most in need. Currently we are raising funds to Help Support, Feed and Protect Lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Latest COVID-19 Update
India's situation in the face of a new wave of COVID-19 infections is extremely concerning with over 370,000 new daily cases and over 3.1mil active cases. This reality has had an obviously impact on the local Salesian network who operate over 360 schools and 500 other precenses throughout the country.

How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to provide relief support to the many who seek refuge and assistance from the Don Bosco Community’s and Schools in the affected Regions.

Current Outreach programs include: 

  • The distribution of groceries, cooked food, protective equipment and toiletry to the poor and needy.
  • The supply of oxygen concentrators and/or mini oxygen-making machines to hospitals and other treatment centres.
  • Providing awareness campaigns for the prevention of covid-19 through good hygiene practices and also the education of the acceptance of vaccination.
