It?s winter again which means most of the asylum seekers and refugees who are on the bridging visa with no rights and low income are in desperate need of our services. Most must try to make ends meet with a meagre allowance that is less than Newstarts. Buying essential items this winter is difficult for many. Currently there are over 2500 asylum seekers and refugees registered at RISE accessing services such as food, materials and shelter.

With the success of last year?s Winter Appeal, RISE is once again welcoming donations to support us in providing these services at RISE and the drop in centre. These include:

  • Food vouchers
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Toiletries
  • Blankets
  • Jumpers and Coats
  • Hoodies

Your donation will ensure somebody will get warm clothes and food this winter and enable refugees to build new lives in Australia in which they can flourish and achieve their fullest potential.

Refugees and asylum seekers are one of the most underserviced members of our society and to respond to this need, we need your financial support.

How to Donate to RISE:

RISE is a tax-deductible organisation and your financial support will enable us to assist refugees and asylum seekers in building their new lives in Australia. Your donation will assist our dedicated volunteers to provide services directly to children, adults and entire families in the refugee and asylum seeker communities.

We urge you to lend us your support by making a tax-deductible donation. With your help, we can build a better and stronger future for all.
