In the wake of JIAO Dan鈥檚 tragic death in October 2007, NLC and OSA joined forces to address the International Students Safety concerns together.
NLC national office had directly approached the top management of all major educational institutions, including all 38 public universities to encourage the implementation of safety measures for International Students.
On 1 May 2008, the International Students Day, our national NLCampaign: Safety First - On Campus & Beyond was officially launched at the welcome reception for NLCommunity Volunteers hosted by the Lord Mayor of City of Melbourne, an event co-sponsored by NLC.
On 8 August 2008, our 100 Days on Campus NLCampaign concluded with the launch of OSAssurance Fund: the International Students Assurance Fund. The fund is an emergency relief fund initiated and managed by NLCare, our welfare operations.
The purpose of the Fund is to provide social welfare through counselling activities and emergency services for benevolent relief of suffering & misfortune for the benefit of NLCommunity. With primary focus on safety & welfare, NLC is able to assist International Students who are disadvantaged in critical situations.
