IT’S TIME TO MAKE THE POLITICIANS TRULY UNDERSTAND

Where we are born and to whom is completely out of our control.
If we grow up in poverty, oppression or war, that is not what we have chosen nor what we deserve.
And so … if we are lucky enough to find ourselves with any kind of privilege, freedom or resources, we are obligated to recognise that and do what we can for those who have been unfortunate enough to find themselves living very different lives to our own.

We are all human beings.

We share the need to feel safe; to have access to basic amenities, nourishment and education; to provide for ourselves and our families and to have the freedom of our own thoughts and beliefs.

So PLEASE  visit the READ, WRITE and SEND pages

and in 10-15 minutes, you will have been proactive on an issue so vital that lives are being lost or permanently impaired every day.

EMAIL EMPATHY
and encourage as many other people as possible to do the same

But Australia has shaped the last five years …
