On behalf of the Board of the Australian Turkish Business Council, I send my warmest regards to all members observing Ramazan.
I would like to acknowledge and thank our members for your continued efforts to support our Council.
In recent weeks we have been experiencing challenging and stressful times and have been collectively working together to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
It has been a particularly difficult time for our Turkish international students, having lost their jobs and without government support. Your commitment and charitable endeavours to support our students has been nothing short of inspiring.
It has been an honour to work alongside the ATBC Board and our members during this crisis.
Ramadan is an incredibly important time of reflection and prayer for Islamic communities.
This year it is more important that we unite together in our struggles to overcome together the crisis that is impacting all of us by expressing compassion, humility and generosity – values that resonate strongly with people all over the world right now.
Best wishes for a holy Ramazan.
Muradiye Marie Selvi
