Feeding Tasmania’s hungry and sponsoring impoverished children in The Philippines is all in a day’s work for the team at Abe’s Audio.

The Tasmanian-based voice over and audio production company sponsors 19 children in partnership with Compassion Australia, and donates $500 a month to the work of Loaves and Fishes Tasmania.

The organisation also does pro bono work for various charitable organisations.

Founder and owner, Abe Udy, said the organisation wanted to help globally and locally in keeping with the company’s value of “living generously.”

“We chose Loaves and Fishes because it’s an organisation on our doorstep whose work is so tangible and easy-to-explain,” Abe said.

“Every month we provide 1000 meals to Tasmanians who are our friends and our neighbours.

“What could be more practical and immediate?”

What started in 1998 in Abe’s bedroom with an old computer, fax machine, dial-up internet, and a microphone tucked between the shirts in his wardrobe, has become an audio powerhouse, providing voice overs and production for TV and radio ads, jingles, E-learning, corporate videos and podcasts.

The organisation uses a pool of national and international talent to create memorable audio services for its wide clientele including BHP, the NRL, Channel Nine and Medibank.

Abe, pictured above with wife Hanna, said they were keen to involve the staff and their three children practically in the work of Loaves and Fishes by learning more about the organisation and volunteering.

“It’s important to us that everyone understands why we are involved with the two charitable organisations and has an opportunity to serve in some way,” he said.

“It’s an enormous privilege to be able to give back.”

Abe and Hanna serve various organisations including Life Christian Church and Devonport Christian School.
