Our Farmers Our Pride

What has it meant “To be human, to be civilised”? As we understand it - “one’s humanity is
best at display while helping the unfortunate in need”. This basic act of selfless kindness is
at the foundation of being civilized.

Here we stand united as TeamUIA in a difficult time for all farmers who have been struck by
major periods of drought making it impossible for them to grow their crops. “The hand that
feeds us” is in trouble today. The severity of this situation has only worsened for everyone.
But we together can choose to be a part of this team of people who have taken it upon
themselves to help in any way we can.

We together with the help of supporting organizations and the support of many individual
supporters would like to welcome you to be a part of this Walk for farmers. Come join us on
the opening ceremony on the 22nd of September at 9a.m. for the first leg of this walk from
Parramatta to Town Hall. People are most welcome to join the walk at any given point that
they may choose. Donations (tax deductable), services rendered, and volunteers are most
welcome to come be a part of this movement as and when possible. This is a two-week long
event where we will be walking in support of our farmers from Sydney to Canberra. Anyone
and Everyone is welcome to come help however they can.

The ending of this beautiful and purposeful journey was planned for the 2nd of October on Gandhi Jayanti. What better day to end a Gandhian style peaceful march for our Australian Farmers. The highlight of yesterday was the reception hosted by FINACT at the Legislative Asssembly of Canberra. The guest of honour attending was none other than His Excellence Dr. Ajay Gondane, High Commissioner of India in Canberra. A big Thank You to FINACT for donating a generous amount of $5000 towards to the cause.
We as a team #WalkForFarmers from UIA raised $25116 as the total amount of donation for the farmers.
A big shout out to Oh Canberra for their great food at the reception. Here we end this journey but we shall continue to strive to help the community however we can and hope to have all of yours continued support.

Today at our final destination-CANBERRA!
We have ended our walk on a very auspicious day of Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti. Hence we chose to end our this peaceful march #WalkForFarmers in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue at Glebe Park in Canberra.

A very big Thank You to His Excellency
Dr Ajay Gondane, High Commissioner for India for attending this small get together and sharing his inspirational thoughts paying tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th anniversary.

We had Gandhi in our thoughts all through this journey. Father of Nation, Mahatma Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in others.”

Helping our farmers in this time of need was our way of trying to give back to the community. Today we can finally say that we as a team have made a difference.
HAVE YOU?

The final day of any journey is always an important one. Today the walkathoners embarked on their last leg of their journey. Keeping in mind that this mission is to help the farmers the team went on to interact with many of the farmers along the way. The farmers explained their plight in this time of need where a vicious circle was started by this period of doubt. We can proudly say that the teams mission to spread awareness and help collect funds for the farmers in need has been a successful one. A big shout out to local authorities for all their help.Looking forward to all of yours continued support.
