I’ve gone and sat through interviews with refugees seeking legal aid to get a fair idea of what’s going on & just done minor things to help. In a few weeks however I’ve actually been allocated a case with another volunteer to work on involving the ‘family reunion project’, so am looking forward to that. Some of the people who do this have an amazing level of commitment to the cause, it’s great!
Thanks. I’m still at it. Just the other day i conducted an interview with a young refugee who’s trying to get his family to join him. Most of the clients are Afghans but we’re increasingly getting African refugees especially from places like Sudan. Sadly, the Australian Government is attempting to pass new legislation that will make it increasingly difficult for refugees who come on boats (the most desperate ones)to come to Australia, especially potential refugees from one of our closest neighbours, West Papua.
