How to support our progressive friends at the Indooroopilly Uniting Church, Brisbane with their Refugee Clinic and Food Bank which is now battling to meet the needs of 653 adults and 137 children:
Many people have become aware of the active role of the Indooroopilly Uniting Church in supporting innocent victims of cruel federal asylum seeker policies.
Some have volunteered, others have brought donations of goods and deposited funds.
No one dreamt it would take more than seven years, yet over 100 men are today incarcerated in a suburban hotel, without freedom, or the right to work, or to reunion with close family – and into their eighth year of indefinite immigration detention.
Others, including families are living in limbo, uncertain of their future. There are standing offers from citizens to accommodate in our community and help the Kangaroo Point men, but all we see and hear is political recalcitrancy
Denied income support, and access to Jobkeeper and Jobseeker because of their immigration status, law abiding people are now in dire straits. It is poverty and despair like I have never seen.
They come to the Food Pantry at our church for basic food – rice , cooking oil, bread, milk and whatever fruit and vegetables are collected from FoodBank in Morningside. With donations, we provide when we can, food vouchers which grant some dignity to people who have no income .
Do it now!
A DIRECT DONATION by bank transfer is greatly appreciated!
