A silent auction with a difference is planned for Canberra.
It is hoped that the event will boost the activities of a non-profit and charitable organization committed to empowering orphans and other vulnerable girls and women in Afghanistan through education, food and clothing.
The ZamZam Foundation was established in Afghanistan in 2019 by a former Member of Parliament of Afghanistan, Dr Nilofar Ebrahimi.
dr. Ebrahimi, who is also a medical specialist and activist, was once an orphan herself.
dr. Ebrahimi’s husband Asif and their five children, all under eighteen, arrived in Canberra seven years ago.
She rejoined her family in Canberra seven months ago.
Adrienne Francis of ABC Radio Canberra spoke with Dr. Ebrahimi and her Canberra friend Felicity Banks, who is secretary of the ZamZam Foundation and creator of Canberra’s Castle of Kindness Refugee Sponsorship Group, talk about how much difference they hope to make by working together.
The ZamZam Foundation Australia Launch and Fundraiser will be held at Theo Notaras Multicultural Center from 7pm on 11 June.
The event will showcase Afghan food, fashion and art with a silent auction and a live performance from Canberra’s singer and songwriter Fred Smith.
