Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA contributes directly to countries and regions of the world where workers are disadvantaged through poverty, a lack of workplace, denial of labour and human rights, civil conflict and war.
Established by the Australian Council of Trade Unions in 1984, Union Aid Abroad is committed to justice and solidarity and to self reliance, not charity. It builds self-reliance through support to educational and training projects for workers and their organisations in Southeast Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East, Southern Africa and the Caribbean.
Union Aid Abroad recently launched an appeal to support those communities devastated by the Nepal earthquake.
Nepal Earthquake Appeal
Struck by a 7.9 magnitude earthquake on 25 April resulting in over four thousand confirmed deaths and widespread destruction of homes and infrastructure on an unprecedented scale; Nepal needs our help.
Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA is raising funds to assist the initiative of General Federation of Nepalese Trade Unions (GEFONT) and Union Network Nepal Liaison Council (UNI NLC) to provide the following support:
- medical treatment for injured
- temporary tent and housing;
- water and food supply.
All funds donated to this appeal will be used for recovery activities by local union partners.
To find out more about the support Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA are providing, and to donate to the appeal, visit the website.
