Who is my neighbour?
Plans are now underway for a group of between 40 and 50 refugees to visit Corowa on the weekend of March 24 and 25 next year.
The refugees, coming from Melbourne, are from various national backgrounds.
The “Who is My Neighbour” (WIMN) group is seeking expressions of interest from people in the community who would like to host individuals or families.
Additionally, the WIMN wish to engage with a community or sporting group who might like to co-host a fun recreational or sporting event with the refugee group.
The WIMN group formed when a core group of local people wished to find a way to connect with refugees.
The vision of the group is to assist and support refugees by providing opportunities for them to engage with our local community.
The group also seeks to broaden the communities understanding of the hardships these refugees have experienced.
The group is made up of members from the Corowa churches and other concerned individuals.
The Corowa group is affiliated with Pioneer Ministry Group in Melbourne who hosted refugees in their community.
The next meeting has been set for Tuesday, November 21 at 7.30pm at the Corowa Community Garden Hall.
