I have taken the opportunity in the last 8 years to raise funds for this important cause, by running (now walking/hobbling) in the City to Surf.
Australia for UNHCR is a wonderful organisation providing emergency relief including shelter, feeding programs and nutrition for those who have been displaced and seeking refuge as a result of wars and famine. Those of us who are in a safe and more privileged position have the opportunity to make our spare funds available to support this important work.
This form of direct assistance is particularly relevant in the highly charged climate surrounding the Australian parliament's position on refugees which focuses more on populist politics than proper humanitarian obligations. I hope you can support this important cause.
The more people that know about Australia for UNHCR, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
