EVENING FORUM FOR PARISHES: STRENGTHENING SUPPORT FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS AND REFUGEES
Wednesday 11 October, 5.30pm for 6–8pm
Cathedral Room, Cardinal Knox Centre, 383 Albert Street, East Melbourne
The Australian Government has recently announced withdrawal of support for hundreds of people transferred from Manus Island or Nauru for medical treatment, and intends to return them to danger on these islands. Meanwhile, more than 800 asylum seekers on Manus Island fear that, once the detention centre is closed in October, Australia will leave them with no future and no hope in PNG. The Forum will discuss practical ways in which you and your parish can help.
