Dunedin Churches Welcome Refugees: Information Evening – All Welcome
Time : Wednesday April 13th 2016 7pm-8.30pm
Place : Mornington Methodist Church corner of Galloway and Whitby Streets, Mornington, Dunedin.
Our speakers will be Mouhannad Taha , from Syria and Leisa de Klerk (Dunedin Red Cross). Mouhannad, a lawyer, came to Dunedin from Syria with his family in 2012. He recently became a Barrister and Solicitor of the NZ High Court. Mouhannad will share many insights with us, including a Muslim perspective on refugee resettlement, and a reflection on how adaptable Syrian people are. Leisa leads the Dunedin Red Cross Volunteer team which will be providing front line support for the former refugee families when they arrive in Dunedin later in April. Leisa will share about her work, and about ways in which Church members and others can assist.
Everyone is welcome to come along and hear about what is happening with Syrian refugee resettlement in Dunedin this year, and to find out ways of offering support to former refugees.
