Donate to Belinda Hassan for Dawson
Belinda Hassan is the Labor candidate for Dawson at the next federal election. Born and raised in Mackay, Belinda has spent a good part of the last 20 years devoted to serving her local community. Through her work as a manager of a small business, or as a support worker for the Samaritan House Women’s Domestic Violence Shelter in Mackay, Belinda has demonstrated a passion for helping the most vulnerable people in our region. She is proud to have also volunteered with a number of local community groups, like the Mackay Sexual Assault Service or Mackay Region Suicide Prevention Network to name just a few. She's also the President of the Sarina Lions Club, member of the Road Accident Action Group, and Past President of the Rotary Club of Mackay Sunrise. As a single Mum, Belinda raised her kids in Mackay and sent them to great local schools so she has experienced first hand the role that education can play in lifting a person, and a family, out of hardship. This is why she is also passionate about making sure that public health services are properly funded for the families that rely on them.
"Here in our community, when people need help and times are tough, we look out for one another. This embedded in me a really strong sense of community, and it’s one of the best things about living here. What the people of Dawson know is that even when we’re facing the tough times, we stick together."
