I have lost my job due to covid 19, I don't have enough funds to finance myself during this pandemic. My government hasn't been able to help us due to economic difference between India and Australia(1aud= 47indian rupee). My father's salary has been declined by 50% as he is a government employee and my sister in India is pregnant right now. So they may need that money for my sister which is why I cannot ask my parents for assistance. I would like to receive atleast rental assistance from the government so that I can sleep sick and survive. :(

7 years giving your life to Australia and your skills and your tax, warrants something in return. So many of my staff have given their ALL to this country.
