Profits will go to the Asylum Seekers Centre, a not-for-profit organisation that provides welcome and practical support to people seeking asylum in New South Wales. Services include emergency relief and housing, foodbank, employment services, a health clinic, family support and educational and recreational activities.

Why support people seeking asylum?

People in Australia can wait years for the government to process their claims for asylum. While they wait, they don’t receive government income support and faces barriers to employment. People seeking asylum were hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and excluded from government support programs including JobSeeker and JobKeeper.
