Refugee Week Sharing Stories with our Staff

Refugee Week Sharing Stories with our Staff
21/06/2024 Refugee Week Sharing Stories with our Staff

We had a beautiful lunchtime with Jannine and Anna, two incredible women with refugee backgrounds who came to our Southport office and shared with our staff their stories of thriving and resilience here in Australia. Jannine came from Burundi, an African country, at a young age. She opened up about the challenges of settling in this country without guidance and struggling to maintain her cultural identity. Now, she encourages other young people to embrace and take pride in their heritage as an active member of our Youth Advisory Group, advocating for multicultural youth on the Gold Coast. Anna is from Ukraine and brings her creative talents as a Graphic Designer to our Marketing and Community Development teams. She expressed how happy she feels to call this country of opportunities her home and is dedicated to empowering her community to thrive and succeed. She also highlighted all the potential and skills migrants bring to this country to make it grow. Ellie, from our Community Development team, also shared her experience working with refugees from Syria, where she could understand the struggles they face and how incredible they are to overcome all the challenges. They both shine with brilliant futures ahead, and we are very happy to have them as part of our organisation. Their stories are not just inspiring, they are a reminder of the value and potential migrants bring to this country.

21/06/2024 Gold Coast Multicultural Network

Celebrating Refugee Week "Finding Freedom: Family," we held the Gold Coast Multicultural Network this week. It was an insightful meeting where organisations shared their support initiatives for refugees to settle and thrive. Our amazing Language Support Workers, Shakila and Najma, shared with us their inspiring journeys of resilience and courage coming to Australia and their stories of giving back to the community. We want to share a beautiful message from Shakila: “For many here, the word "refugee" is just that—a word. For me, being a refugee is an overwhelming feeling. It’s a connection to my family, my friends, and my neighbours. Refugees mean sadness and suffering, yet they are also about respect—for the resilience of those who continue to endure. During Refugee Week, I urge you to remember that behind every refugee statistic is a human story, like mine, filled with dreams, fears, and implacable hope. Let us work together to provide support, amplify their voices, and fight for the freedom that every human being deserves. Today, let us honour them to make a difference so that tomorrow will not be too late.” Thank you to Tala from our SETS team, Renata, Kevin, and Steve from Multicultural Families Organisation Inc., and Moya Tong from SSI - Settlement Services International for presenting the services they provide to support refugees. Well done to our Community Development team for organising such a meaningful event.

Yes. Are you a carer for a family member or friend with a condition that requires support with basic or complex daily tasks? Many people don’t see themselves as carers. They are just children, parents, partners, or friends who care for someone close to them. You may be known as an ‘unpaid carer’.

Unpaid carers are often unaware that they too can access support services to help them cope with the responsibility of caring for others. Carers can get a wide range of help, from counselling and peer support groups to respite care, home help, and equipment. 

We can talk to you about what carer services are available and how they can help.

No. Although we don't provide accommodation ourselves, our team can facilitate connections with service providers or offer assistance through our dedicated Community Pathway Connector team to help you access the support you need. Contact us at cpc@mccgc.org.au
