Rnita Dacho published Support a lifeline for refugees sent to Manus Island and Nauru in Appeals 2021-10-29 15:42:19 +1100
After more than seven years, hundreds of refugees are still trapped in the destructive and inhumane cycle of the offshore processing regime Australia runs with Nauru and Papua New Guinea.
But there is an alternative, right now.
Operation Not Forgotten is a community-led response that provides private sponsorship to Canada for refugees who were detained in PNG and Nauru and have no viable resettlement option.
By donating today, you can help these brave people to finally find a permanent home.
Australian donations to this appeal over $2 are tax deductible.
Through the support of thousands of generous donors, this partnership between Vancouver-based settlement organisation MOSAIC, the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) and Ads-Up Refugee Network Canada has not only been giving people a lifeline to get off Nauru and PNG, but is also ensuring they get all the support they later need in Canada from volunteer groups there.
Will you become part of this movement of people helping give refugees trapped in PNG and Nauru a permanent home?

The Refugee Council of Australia is the peak body for refugees, people seeking asylum and the organisations that support them. We need a well-resourced peak body that can coordinate the sector to engage in strategic, effective advocacy to achieve justice, fairness and equity for those seeking safety in Australia. This is the best way to enact change, but it’s only possible with the help of people like you.
Our advocacy priorities are guided by our important vision document, 'The Platform for Change', which is thematically arranged into five broad policy areas which make up the various areas the Australian government legislated and regulates issues related to refugees and people seeking asylum.
Help us achieve this ambitious vision for change by making a tax-deductible donation today!
