Good Deed

Give the gift of compassion

Refugee Council of Australia is the peak body for organisations that support refugees and people seeking asylum. They support refugee rights and work to achieve justice, fairness and equity.

There are currently around 16,000 children in families seeking protection in Australia. Many people seeking asylum have lost their jobs as a result of COVID-19, as they often work in the service sectors worst affected. People seeking asylum are not eligible for the JobSeeker or JobKeeper payments, like many other workers. They have been left with nothing. It will be hard for them to re-enter the workforce, especially in the current economy.

There are serious concerns that many families seeking asylum have been left in a situation where they have no work, no income, and no way out. Demand on emergency relief at asylum agencies has in most cases trebled, with unprecedented demand for food, medicines and rent relief.

Help Refugee Council of Australia achieve a humanitarian policy for refugees and people seeking asylum. Join their movement by signing their petition, donating or taking part in their #yearofwelcome campaign.
