 $9,000 raised at the Rockdale Fundraiser of the Benedict Barkat Foundation

Benedict Barkat Foundation of Australia is a charity organisation run by our loyal Christian Pakistani Australian, Mr. Mushtaq Barkat, owner of Tandoori Hut Restaurant in Sydney. The Foundation is operating a school in a remote village in Distt Hafizabad. I was participating as Guest Speaker in the annual fundraising dinner organised on 3 Nov 2013 in Sydney.

The Annual Benedict Barkat Foundation Fundraiser to support students at St. Mary’s Catholic Boarding School in Hafizabad, Pakistan was held on 21 October 2018 at Mary Mackillop Parish Rockdale Sydney.
