Will you join the hundreds of generous Australians who are directly helping give hope to refugees like Dima?
Operation #NotForgotten is a community-led response that provides private sponsorship to Canada for refugees detained in PNG, Nauru and in Australia, who have no viable resettlement option.
The support of thousands of generous donors, combined with the partnership between Vancouver-based settlement organisation MOSAIC, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) and Ads-Up Refugee Network, Canada, has provided a lifeline for people to be free of the horrors of offshore processing and the funds raised also ensure the refugees are provided all the support they need in Canada.
To date, resettlement applications for 150 refugees and 96 separated family members have been lodged and ten sponsorship applications have been approved by the Canadian Government.
But there’s still more to be done. We need to raise $500,000 to sponsor 30 refugees to Canada by Christmas.
That’s 30 more people who could find a permanent, safe home.
But, in order to do that, we need your support.
Your donation will directly sponsor individual refugees or whole families to start anew – to have a real life in Canada, rather than being trapped on Nauru or PNG.
