Join us for morning tea with guest speaker Yaser Naseri to celebrate Refugee Week.

Yaser fled his homeland of Iran in 2011 and made the journey halfway around the world to move to Australia in 2014. Today, Yaser works in marketing and is an advocate for better inclusion of refugees in Australia.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear Yaser's story and learn about each other.

Refugee Week (16-22 June) is a celebration of the contributions refugees and people seeking asylum make in our communities. It also provides awareness of the issues affecting refugees and reminds us all about social cohesion.

The theme of this year's Refugee Week is Finding Freedom: Family. This theme invites us to explore the stories of refugees who, despite the challenges they encounter, discover a source of freedom within the embrace of their families.
