Icom (Australia) partners with Driving Oz with the Black Dog (17/10/17)
Icom (Australia) was recently contacted by the Driving Oz with the Black Dog team, Paul, Kirstine, their three children and their beautiful black dog, Luna. They have taken up the initiative of travelling across Australia trying to raise awareness about mental health and well-being a major issue which needs a lot of attention.
Icom (Australia) was able to support their cause and mission by donating a Mobile UHF CB and Air band handheld unit to assist them with their endeavours. The Driving Oz with a Black Dog crew visited our office and met with Icom (Australia) Managing Director Masahiko Komoda for a presentation of the equipment and some Icom goodies for the kids.
We look forward to following and sharing their travels as they cover Australia increasing the public’s awareness of this worthy cause.
