Study Queensland Luhrmann Appeal

GIVIT is the smart way to give to international students stranded in Queensland due to COVID-19.

More than 80,000 international students are currently stranded in Queensland, separated from family and their home countries. Some of these are far from home and unable to return to their home country because of the pandemic.

GIVIT is teaming up with Study Queensland, The Luhrmann Appeal and the Care Army to ensure international students in Queensland are cared for during these unprecedented times. Film legend Baz Luhrmann’s daughter Lilly said it is an issue close to her heart. “As an international student myself, these are my friends,” she said.


Listed below is exactly what is needed right now.

The list changes as requests are filled, and new needs are identified by support organisations providing essential assistance services. 100% of donated funds received by GIVIT will be used to purchase essential items identified by support organisations working directly with students stranded.

Every donation helps.
