The Year 10 Remar Red Rowers collaborated and bought in items to stock the ‘pantry’ at the Centre for Asylum Seekers, Refugees and Detainees (CARAD).
CARAD is recognised as a respected voice for the rights of asylum seekers, refugees and detainees and a provider of essential services, ensuring that all people seeking safety in Australia are able to live with dignity. Esther Deng from CARAD came to speak to us about life in Australia as an asylum seeker, refugee and detainee. She helped us to understand the struggle that people have when they are unable to access the basics in life, such as employment, education and healthcare. Before Esther arrived, we spent time making cards with messages of welcome for those who use the centre. It was a very inspiring afternoon.
