International students are among the highest contributors to Australia’s economy and it is important that their contributions be used to support them in such difficult times.

Many international students are being laid off, facing a severe decrease in shifts or unemployed and they are living with just a few savings already.

To survive this outbreak and contribute to the health guidelines in order to stop the spread of the virus, international students who are not eligible for the wage subsidies for businesses to pay workers announced recently and cannot apply for the Centrelink for being temporary visa holders really need and deserve the Australian government help for these important reasons:

-International Students are taxpayers.

-International Students do not have medicare benefits and they pay for their own health insurance.

-International Students contribute billions to Australia's economy.

-International Students consider Australia as their home, respect the laws and are residents too.

International students bring $32 billion to the Australian economy every single year and pay so many fees, and now they are not getting any support.

International students are facing unprecedented tough moments and really need government consideration. Take into account that international students bring $32 billion to the Australian economy every single year and pay so many fees apart from taxes, rent and education fees.

We need your support and as society builders, we are going to help this country to bounce stronger just because we call Australia our home too.
