Australian Senator Hon. Mathew Canavan visits Asha

We had the pleasure of hosting Australian Senator the Hon. Mathew Canavan, Minister for Resources and Northern Australia and other ministers from the Australian High Commission visit our Kanak Durga slum community to celebrate the International Women’s Day.

Mr Canavan was fascinated with Asha’s work and spoke highly about how impressed he is of meeting the Women’s Association, who despite all the odds, are extraordinary women in their own rights. Apart from this, the senator also took a stroll around the community with sheer fervour.

Mr Canavan also extended his support towards health rights of women and girls in Asha community. “It is great to be here [at Asha] today, to witness the hope and change take place in such a wonderful way,” shared Mr Canavan during his note to the Women and children. “Australia and Asha have had a very strong relationship since the last 28 years, and I hope this continues forever,” he added.
