The upcoming Migrant Settlement Committee meetings on Friday 6th April and Friday 1st May are now cancelled to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
As it stands, the June meeting is still going ahead but is subject to change depending on the situation with the virus at the time. CCOEI will do all we can to ensure the public is informed of our movements during this time.
This celebration (organised by Whitehorse Manningham Libraries) was held on 4th March 2020. Over 50 women attended. Master of Ceremonies and Migrant Settlement Committee member, Dilnaz Billimoria, said this was a “grassroots, multicultural community event”. Women presenting included CCOEI Committee Member Gina Etienne who spoke passionately about her experiences as a woman in coming to and living in Australia.
Harmony Day 2020 – CANCELLED
It is with regret that the Together in Harmony event to be held on 21 March has been cancelled due to the Cvit-19 virus being declared a pandemic by the WHO and other related issues where running of the event may impact participants, audience or guests.
