Q. Can you tell me about the international student relief fund?
The international student relief fund began in July 2020, offering aid for international students who were affected by the global pandemic. Students of different nationalities came on board, and through crowd-sourced donations, we were able to offer help in areas such as food, phone bills and travel expenses. This program also included regular online yoga classes, which were available free of charge for students to attend.
