Glenside Lions assist Afghan Refugees

Adelaide volunteers have been working with refugees and asylum seekers for many years. A number of volunteers work in particular suburbs to welcome and assist new arrivals, or for particular programs, such as teaching English, or supporting school and higher education. In 2003 these groups joined under the umbrella of Circle of Friends Australia Inc. In September this year a new circle was formed to specifically help the new arrivals from Afghanistan.
At our last meeting in September Glenside Lions (C201S1) donated $5000 to help this circle meet the immediate urgent needs of these Afghan refugees.
