World Refugee Day 2014

Mid North Coast Refugee Support Group
World Refugee Day 2014
In 2014, Refugee Week was held across Australia from June 15-21. The theme was "Restoring Hope".

On Saturday June 21, MNC Refugee Support Group hosted a public event at midday on Port Macquarie's Town Green to mark World Refugee Day - a day that aims to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and to celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees.
Guest speaker was Greens MLC, Dr Mehreen Faruqi, who migrated from Pakistan to Australia in 1992 with her young family.

She is a passionate activist on a range of issues, and has worked as a volunteer and campaigner. See more at:
