Community Awards 2021 Contributions to Diversity and Inclusion - Ha Nguyen
Tuesday 16 November 2021
The Yarra Community Awards honour the everyday heroes who make outstanding contributions to our community.
Ha receives this award for his volunteer work on the Victoria Street Lunar New Year Festival and the North Richmond Moon Lantern Festival. These festivals are a wonderful celebration of our vibrant and diverse culture in Yarra – and delight community members of all backgrounds.
Ha has a long history of volunteering for these festivals and has become the driving force behind them.
In addition to his volunteer work with the festivals, Ha contributes to several other community initiatives. Ha is President of the Victoria Street Business Association and is a member of the Rotary Club of Collingwood – where he donates both his time and the use of his cooking school for community initiatives.
Congratulations, Ha – and thank you for your ongoing contributions to our community.
A special mention goes to Selima Ymer for her volunteer work with the Albanian Australian Islamic Society (AAIS) with over 20 years of service.
