One of the main things that we have accomplished in Australia this year was being passed by Aus Aid and the Australian Taxation Department .We are now a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION in Australia. We are hoping now that business people and you our supporters will have tax relief when donating to us.
Maggie Nolan McMullen, OAM – Patron, Founder Member *RIP – 24th September, 2019. She was an inspirational woman who has devoted much of her life to helping the sick and poor in India. Maggie Sister was the founder Trustee and Patron of “New Hope India Relief Australia Inc and a Trustee of New Hope Rural Leprosy Trust India”. She lived and worked from the idyllic town of Broome Western Australia, but her life’s work took her far from that setting. The grandmother of three was known as Maggie Sister, a name given to her by the people with whom she worked in the Indian regions of Western Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. New Hope has TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION STATUS in Australia. We are hoping now that business people and you our supporters will have tax relief when donating to us.
This is really great for New Hope, I hope the business community will get on-board with this, it has taken along time to get this in place. I remember Maggie telling me about this and how she wanted this done many years ago. Well it is finally done, great work Maggie!
