The Refugee Council of Australia, coordinators of Refugee Week (17 to 25 June), call on the Australian community to recognise the courage and contribution of refugees.
The launch will be hosted by youth representative and former refugee Simon Shahin. Key note speaker is leading orthopaedic surgeon, former refugee and Refugee Week Ambassador Munjed Al Muderis.
The event also features the STARTTS Humanitarian Awards.
With Refugees is the theme of Refugee Week 2018. It celebrates the refugees who have made such a great contribution to Australia and stands in global solidarity with refugees everywhere.
Refugee Week is a time to reflect on the need that millions of people forced from their homes face. We come together to celebrate the courage of refugees resettling in Australia. We recognise the generous acts of welcome displayed to refugees by so many caring Australians.
