Pitch in for Suzy, an ABC Legend

For 20 years, Suzy has been has been a fixture of the ABC's South Asia Bureau in New Delhi. She was hired by Edmond Roy and his wife Cheryl. Ever since she has become an indelible part of life in the bureau. She assisted us all with navigating Indian culture, helping to translate between English, Hindi and Tamil, and welcomed so many professional and personal guests to enjoy their time in Delhi and beyond. She became a part of so many Australian families who spent time in India. Who can forget her ginger chai, masala dosa and banana pancakes? In short, she is one of life's great people.

Sadly, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Delhi Bureau will be downsized this year. We are grateful that so many of the staff there have been given their entitlements to recognise the decades of service to the ABC and its staff. Unfortunately, Suzy's classification as a household staff member means she misses out on these entitlements.

So we are asking our family, friends and colleagues, and especially those who have enjoyed some of Suzy's amazing hospitality over the years, to contribute to her 'redundancy payout'. As you know, even $20 goes a long way in India and so we would be very grateful if you would show your appreciation with a donation through this site.
