    Host a Feast for Freedom this March to provide people seeking asylum with food, shelter, healthcare and other vital services to help them start to rebuild their lives in the community.

    Hosting is easy:

    Sign up and get your FREE Kit, host your Feast, and raise funds to support refugees.

    Your generosity has the power to help refugees and people seeking asylum who have been treated unfairly and denied their liberty and dignity.

    Donations to the ASRC enable our Human Rights Law Program and Refugee Leadership initiatives to be a platform for refugees seeking freedom or ready to speak up for their rights.

    More than ten years after our government forced them to brutal overseas detention camps, dozens of people who came here for safety are still trapped in Papua New Guinea.

    Tell your MP it’s time to evacuate the refugees abandoned in PNG, so they can rebuild their lives, here or in another safe country.
