    • Service Clubs and Auxiliaries > Community Groups


Description of Membership:  Our pro-refugees group is affiliated with Rural Australians for Refugees which is a vast mosaic of overlapping networks: lawyers, church people, human-rights advocates, welfare workers, political activists and ordinary people; from highly skilled professionals with specific expertise to the many thousands who have joined a grassroots movement striving to return compassion and humanity to Australia's treatment of asylum seekers.


Our aims:

(a) to raise public awareness of the issues involving asylum seekers and refugees

(b) to write letters to newspapers and politicians 

(c) to meet members of parliament to challenge inhumane policies

(d) to provide practical help (food, clothing, accommodation) to local refugees

(e) to fund-raise for asylum seekers and refugees


We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the months of February, April, June, August, October and December, 7.30pm at St John's Hall, Francis Street Bairnsdale.
