I received an email from the Refugee Claimants Support Centre:
“An asylum seeking family with five young children originating from the South Pacific is seeking help from the community. … The Minister for Immigration has offered a visa to the father and four of the children … [but] decided not to offer a visa to the mother and … daughter.”
Apparently New Zealand is willing to take in the entire family, and they have until July 10 to raise $1,200 to pay for the flight. When I spoke to the centre yesterday afternoon they still had $900 to go!
Please consider giving a donation (doesn’t matter how small) to help this family to find a compassionate home. Contact the RCSC on (07) 3357 9013 and be sure to mention that you want the money to specifically go to this family.
