How Mayne Can Help Syrian Refugees: Sun May 8


How are the 160 Syrian refugees who have landed in Victoria doing, and what can Mayne Islanders do to help them? Ali Hamado of Victoria's Immigrant Refugee Centre Society (VIRCS) will speak at the Ag Hall on Sunday May 8, 1:30 - 3 pm. Free, but donations welcome.

Sponsored by The Mayne Island Syrian Refugee Support Group, which is fundraising for ESL classes for the refugees, planning a Family Day on Mayne Island for them (TBA), and arranging billeting for a VIRCS staff working retreat on Mayne. (Let the Mayne group know if you might be able to billet any VIRCS staff, date still to be arranged.)
