How do we help?
• Providing ongoing contact and support, assistance with housing, employment, education, language and cultural activities for sponsored refugees
• Fundraising so that more refugee families can receive our support.
• Providing interest-free loans for airfares and settlement expenses.
The MVSRG has provided 31 loans for flights and other expenses associated with settlement since March 2006. The amounts range from $154 to $13,645. The total of loans provided to October 2013 is $105,452. The repayment of loans, which can then be re-loaned again and again has ensured that our support reaches a lot of people.
RACV have been very generous with the donation of nine sets of five driving lessons which have been made available for 'new settlers' and is much appreciated by the Murray Valley Sanctuary Group and the people they are supporting.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need more information.
Due to the high demand for visa applications no more new applications will be accepted for processing until 1st September 2017.
Murray Valley Sanctuary Refugee Group sponsor refugees from refugee camps through the Australian Government and at no stage will the applicants for those visas be asked to pay any money. Contact will be phone and email and not by any written letters. Murray Valley Sanctuary does not have any agents working for us on the African Continent.
