Would you like to see real change in alleviating the fear and despair currently being experienced by hundreds of asylum seekers currently living here in Melbourne?
Why not this year, instead of buying the usual box of chocolates or bottle of wine, donate to i.feed.refugees, a grassroots social enterprise helping to feed asylum seekers in crisis?
Currently, all donations raised will be used to support a pilot community refugee dinner, cooked by refugees for asylum seekers in the Whittlesea Community. Funds raised by i.feed.refugees will provide the Whittlesea Community with access to fresh produce from our partner organization The Community Grocer.
By giving a meaningful gift from i.feed.refugees this year, you will be directly helping someone who has had to flee their country, friends, careers, and now struggles to support their most basic needs, due to the lack of a basic living allowance whilst they await the outcome of the immigration process.
i.feed.refugee's e-card is an opportunity to rebuild confidence and self-esteem in someone whose life is in limbo due to the bureaucracy of the current asylum seeker application process.
At i.feed.refugees, we believe access to fresh food that is culturally relevant, is a basic human right.
Purchase an e-card this year and you will receive it via email and help us to un-fuck the world!
We would love your support via social media to spread our advocacy.
Take a stand and have your say. Share it to Instagram or Facebook with the #ifeedrefugees.
You may have heard that refugees get more support than other Australians.
This is not true. Read Australian Government assistance to refugees: fact v fiction on the Parliament of Australia website.
