If you feel helpless at the situation in Afghanistan, you can do something practical and life-changing to help local Afghans get their loved ones to safety. You can donate to Afghan Azizan, a special program offering free and subsidised migration assistance for local Afghans.
The Australian Refugee Association is proud to present a series of Refugee Week events throughout June exploring unity and connection. With ARA's Conversation, we'll explore and question what it is to be unified, through the lens of Australia's greatest preoccupation: sport. Our New Land, New Hope online and banner exhibition and Author Talks celebrate the contributions of people from refugee and migrant backgrounds to their adopted homeland. And ARA's Youth Ambassadors will challenge the perceptions and myths about refugees in their first major workshop for the year.
