Our charitable association began in 1998, when His Grace Maurice PIAT, bishop of Mauritius while in Sydney asked our French speaking community, especially the Mauritians, for help to support the educational program in Mauritius.

From the start our efforts were undertaken in association with the Australian Catholic University (to help education in Mauritius) through the formation of qualified teachers for the education of poor children there.
Since then, the “Mauritian Night” became a “Charity Night” taking place every year on the last Saturday of October.
From 2005 in association with Caritas Australia we have alternatively helped Mauritius and Madagascar sending our help through Caritas Mauritius and Caritas Madagascar.
In Madagascar our help has gone to the holistic social development of the poor through support of education for children and adults, health care in the bush through mobile dispensaries as well as small hospitals looking after lepers and TB sufferers on the south-east coast of the Island
In 2007 our charitable association was registered with NSW government as the “Sydney French Roman Catholic Charities” (CNF/20467) and recognised by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney.
Two years ago we started helping Fr Pedro OPEKA of Madagascar with his endeavours on the outskirts of Antananarivo. His NGO organization called “AKAMASOA” (which means ‘Good Friends’) with the help of thousands of paid professional teachers, health & social workers and many volunteers, provides for around 20000 people (60% children under 15; including orphans and abandoned) jobs (brick homes construction, hand crafts, agriculture, carpentry, mechanics, welding) and education (4 primary & secondary schools, 4 kindergartens and 6 pharmacies).
More details maybe found on: www.perepedro.com .
In 2013 the SFRCC joined ‘Catholic Mission’ in partnership in order to improve its fundraising activities through the tax deductibility offered for the personal donations going to the ‘Akamasoa’ activities.
Financial and donation expectations:
Amount raised to date: since 1999 until 2014: over $740,000.00.
Number of donors to date: average 500
Fundraising goal for the last five years: between $50,000 and $70,000 each year.
