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.
