This month it was our great pleasure and privilege to meet some of this years Syrian refugees to NZ - the Agha family. Abdul, his wife Taghrid and their 5 children have recently arrived in Dunedin and are delighted and very grateful to have been housed in Green Island. Unfortunately, the location of their home means 2 bus trips to most destinations, making it difficult and expensive for the family to have outings or attend to basic chores like supermarket shopping.
Through dint of good luck, Sally and her husband Fraser happened to have a 7 seater van which was surplus to requirements. They decided to donate it to the Agha family.
Anyone wanting to donate goods to refugee families in Dunedin or to get involved in working with them to help them settle in Dunedin can contact NZ Red Cross, 03 477 1527, firstname.lastname@example.org.
