Congolese refugee victim of warRefugees need your help! Donate to help refugees and their suffering families out of unimaginably terrible conditions by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Your gift will go towards our advice and support services for refugees,  interest-free airfare loans for successful unfunded applicants stuck in refugee camps without any way to fund their journey to Australia. They risk losing their only hope for a future, and even their life.

Once in Australia, Sanctuary will help new arrivals with all aspects of settlement as needed. Their travel loan is gradually repaid over 2 to 3 years and is then ‘re-cycled’ to assist more families to escape their ongoing suffering.

A small amount of funding is used to provide direct life support to sponsored refugee families who are in urgent need of medical or food aid.

Sanctuary also has an education fund to directly assist refugee children who have a right to basic education, but have no access to it without our help. Our on-the-ground partner in South Kivu, DR Congo, oversees the Program, and every dollar is carefully used to help as many children as possible. $50 a year will cover one child’s education, and this provides great joy to each fortunate child!
