(From Mohammed Isah):

Dear Friends,

Refugee Week is being celebrated from 14 – 20 June and this year’s theme is ‘With courage let us all combine’.

The theme is particularly relevant, as Lentara UnitingCare continues to celebrate the courage of people seeking asylum living lawfully in the community while they await the outcome of their protection visa application.

It also serves as a call to action for all Australians: how can we stand up against injustice and work together to make our country one that lives up to its national anthem as a nation with boundless plains to share?

Lentara UnitingCare’s Asylum Seeker Program warmly invites you to join in Refugee Week celebrations. Please find attached details about a Concert for Compassion which may interest you. The celebration includes a chamber music concert, featuring the Saverio String Quartet.

I hope you can join in Refugee Week celebrations by attending this event, which is raising much-needed funds to support our Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre in Brunswick.

Kind regards,

Mohammed Isah,

Program Manager Asylum Seeker Program, UnitingCare Lentara
