IASAQ ISO Care Packages
With so many people in isolation at the moment, IASAQ are looking at delivering people in the Brisbane area Irish care packages. We have some small packages available at the moment to safely drop off to people who may need a reminder of home at this time.
We are also calling for items to donate to help the initiative continue. We will wrap the items into care packages and deliver them. If you’d like to help you can:
- Drop off items to the IASAQ office
- Order items online and get them sent to the office (probably the easier option!)
- If neither suits, you can donate to this cause via paypal.me/iasaq or bank transfer

The care packs could contain food, games, books, uber eats vouchers, self-care items anything really once it doesn’t contain alcohol.
What’s important is that people who are isolated and lonely during this odd period know that we are there for them and that someone is thinking of them.
If you would like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a direct message on social media. All enquires are handled confidentially.
As you can tell, it’s an extraordinary amount of work to be dealing with and our coordinator Paddy is doing an incredible job in managing everything but we simply do not have the financial resources to help everyone. IASAQ always asks themselves the same question as a motivator “if it were my son or daughter, sister or brother, niece, nephew or grandchild, I’d hope someone was willing to give a damn and help them on the far side of the world too, wouldn’t I?” Our core mandate is support those who are most vulnerable; and those who will be susceptible to mental health, domestic violence, financial issues and personal despair. These people are our grandparents, parents, siblings, close friends and neighbours. Any donation, be it big or small, is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use to assist those must vulnerable in Queensland.
All donations over $2 are tax deductible. We know that these are tight times, but any contribution you can make, be it large or small will be put to good use to assist those most vulnerable in our Queensland community.
