About the event

This  is the time for women, for much needed truth–telling and bravery.  So,  we invite you into the inner sanctum of M4R to join this guided  narrative with four brave and beautiful women sharing their individual  struggle to be part of a healthier and more inclusive society, and the  importance of continuously challenging limited belief systems, their  privilege and capabilities.

Be  part of what will be a radiant gathering of soul sisters in celebration  of International Women’s Day. Take your seat at the table with Carmen  Lee Platt, Veronica Nou, Leonie Dyer and Dulce Muñoz, who have all made  lasting contributions to Australian charity M4R.


Carmen  Lee Platt is founder of ‘The Generous and the Grateful Inc’, who’s  mission is to connect generous everyday Australians donating essential  household items with people fleeing danger; so that they may create a  safe warm home, from which they can rebuild their lives and have a  better future.

------------- Dulce  Muñoz is the National Convener of M4R where she collaborates with  National Justice Project and Human Rights For All. She is the winner of  the Humanitarian Award of The City of Sydney 2018. She runs the Outreach  Program at Addi Road (Addison Road Community Organisation) that helps  provide food for over 130 families a week. She is passionate about her  role of motherhood as an agent of social change.

---------- Leonie  Dyer is founding member of M4R and the Sydney Convener for Advocacy,  working with two refugee service providers in Parramatta and Granville,  and volunteers with assisting people seeking asylum and refugees to find  pathways to study and employment. She has a long history of working in  local communities, providing support and advocating for change to better  impact peoples lives.

------------ Veronica  Nou is a pharmacist and proprietor of two Western Sydney pharmacies.  She is the winner in the Refugee Supporter category of NSW Humanitarian  Awards in 2020. A former Cambodian refugee herself, she was recognised  for her work in feeding, clothing and caring for newly arrived refugee  families as the National Convener of M4R group, (comprises of over  40,000 members), which was instrumental in the successful #KidsOffNauru campaign among other achievements.

---------- The  delectable feast will be cooked by Rahima Sha a talented young women  who speaks four languages, a great seamstress and one brilliant cook.  She is mother of five beautiful strong children and has become a  powerful advocate for her family and other families, that like them, are  seeking asylum in Australia.
