When Sabala arrived in Australia all she wanted was safety. 

She watched in despair as her husband Nebeel was beaten and bruised purely for their choice of religion. 

Sabala’s story is frightening but not necessarily rare. She’s just one of many who have made the courageous choice to flee everything she knows for a better life. 

Initially she needed food, shelter, and access to healthcare. 

Then we helped Sabala with her English and assistance in finding a job through our employment services. 

The Asylum Seekers Centre works to provide a holistic approach to those seeking asylum to ensure the basics are covered as quickly as possible. A stable home, good health and a network of support helps a lot. 

Sabala now works part time but with an average of 1,168 people accessing our employment services each year, we need your support. 

Please make a donation today and together we’ll give Sabala and others like her a chance to thrive.

Your support can help someone rebuild their life.

People seeking asylum know what it is like to have their lives change overnight. When they seek protection in a new country they leave behind their work, community, schools, friends and family.

While their request for protection is considered by the government, often taking years, they receive no support or safety net from the Federal Government. Finding a job is the only way forward and the Asylum Seekers Centre is here to help.
