Befriend a Child in Detention is a community project committed to seeing an end to the detention of child asylum seekers. We aim to inspire and support compassionate Australians to make a positive connection with the children and families living in detention: to ameliorate their experience, to raise awareness of their circumstances, and to advocate for positive change.
If you share our concerns about the detention of child asylum seekers, we invite you to find out more about the issue, and our project, and to become involved.
Please support the Befriend a Child in Detention Project
In these trying times it is more important than ever to support children seeking asylum. The Befriend a Child in Detention project is doing this by sending parcels to children and by running advocacy programs.
- To foster positive connections between Australians and asylum seeker children living in detention;
- To alleviate some of the experience of detention through friendship;
- To motivate Australians to advocate for an end to the detention of children;
- To provide a platform through which the community can take positive action.
To join us in fulfilling these aims please make a tax deductible donation to the Befriend a Child in Detention project. We appreciate all donations large and small.
