Newtown’s Asylum Seekers Centre is one of Sydney’s great treasures: an organisation powered by volunteers and donations, that gives new arrivals to Australia the kind of welcome and support they need to become active contributors to our community.
They help over 2500 people every year with access to food, healthcare, job and education opportunities, all on funding that is less than one full time role.
They need our help to keep their doors open. The need for support has increased 5x over the past 5 years - so they need regular monthly givers to keep the service going. I’ve been a monthly giver for the past year and it has been one way to feel more empowered and positive about how we treat some of the people who turn to us for help.
Can you spare $25 a month to help? From now till May 15 I’ll be working with the Asylum Seekers Centre to get 5 new regular givers every day. Please click on the link below and join us: I’d love to give you a shout-out and thanks if you can be part of the community of support.
