Our Stories Past & Present

Each of the families and individuals who arrive as refugees have their own stories – very often involving sadness, trauma, violence and fear – but also strength, persistence, courage and resilience.

Each refugee experience is unique, and we encourage you to take the time to read a few stories from our community – we promise you’ll be inspired!
