What can one small village do?

A Coffee With Heart

Would you be willing to Shout a Coffee with Heart once a month so a refugee family can be supported financially while they find their place amongst us?

Giving $5 per month every month* can make a big difference. Let’s make it the power of many.

*Gift vouchers for Christmas can be found here

TAKE ACTION

No matter where we come from or how we got here, everyone needs a safe place to call home.

Who we are

Since 2013, UKI Refugee Project has partnered with people seeking asylum in Australia and with the Australian community to promote understanding, compassion and friendship for refugees.

What we do

Hosting
regular friendship visits - with refugees and asylum seekers coming to stay in the Tweed Valley.

Advocacy
Making successful representations to local Council to declare the Tweed a ‘”Refugee Welcome Zone”’; consistently lobbying politicians for policy change; participating in the nationwide campaign “Seven Years Too Long”.

Encouraging
wider community awareness and involvement through fundraising events such as film screenings, concerts, performances, etc.

Partnering
with the Romero Centre in Brisbane to provide practical assistance to asylum seekers, particularly those with no income or accommodation.

Learning
by consulting refugees and those who know refugees well.

Helping
to settle refugees into our community when families and individuals decide to make the Tweed their home.
