French Assist is a non-profit association based in Queensland Australia. The association helps French speakers who need assistance for various reasons for a whole range of reasons, including moral support for lonely expats or even visitors ending up in hospital. The association is run by volunteers, so listen to Rosa Dedaj, the current President, as she raises awareness about their work. It’s a great way to acknowledge and support the actions of these big-hearted, helpful people !
