The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all to experience how events beyond our control can radically change our everyday lives. Refugees face fear and uncertainty everyday and every June 20th we mark World Refugee Day to commemorate the strength and courage of refugees around the world
In the past we have gathered together to learn and reflect about our roles as refugee sponsors. Obviously this year things are going to be a little different in order to keep everyone healthy and safe.
We all need to continue taking actions that will help keep everyone healthy and prevent the spread of COVID-19. This means staying at home as much as possible and by practising physical distancing.
So, this June 20th we are inviting you to our "At Home" World Refugee Day Event!
By buying your online event ticket you are not only commemorating World Refugee Day, but you are ensuring AURA will be able to continue providing support and expertise to groups involved in refugee sponsorship and resettlement.
Tickets are $25
To buy your ticket, please visit: "At Home" World Refugee Day Event
