June 2017 Recipients
Tarana Hanif Munmun, a 20-year-old student who is confined to a wheelchair, has received $3,500 to lend her a financial “helping hand” as she studies an engineering degree.
Graham and Ingrid Rusbatch, friends of Tarana, applied for the grant on her behalf. They met one day when Graham helped Tarana and a friend who were having trouble with her wheelchair. It was clear to Graham that the wheel chair needed fixing and he and his wife visited Tarana to do repairs on the wheelchair.
They have been friends ever since and the couple have been constantly surprised by her resilient, focussed and caring attitude. The grant will help her achieve the many goals she has at present and in the future.
