About JCMA: The Jewish Christian Muslim Association (JCMA), founded in 2003, is committed to the promotion of understanding, mutual respect and peaceful relations among the members of our faith communities. We are unswerving in our support of the democratic values that underpin such relations in Australia and in other democratic countries. These values include the defence of individual human rights, effective systems of justice, freedom of religion, freedom of expression and existence of political structures that ensure that governments rule with the consent of the governed. JCMA run two residential conferences each year, one of which is for women only, a schools program to introduce primary and secondary school students to the three faiths, and a variety of interfaith events.

About Tents 4 Peace International Inc: a non-profit registered organisation founded by Australians Anna Crotty, and Fazila Tasmim-Hajeb. Fazila, an Afghanistan native who has lived in Australia for 22 years, is very passionate about helping widows and children of Afghanistan, particularly widows who lost everything during the past 30 years of civil war especially during the government of Taliban. In 2006, the group raised $150,000 to build a tent- orphanage for Afghani refugees. The orphanage can shelter 120 children. They continue to raise money to build their own orphanage on land provided by the Afghan Government and require ongoing sponsorship for these children. They also raise funds to provider coal, shelter and heat in advance of each year’s winter.
