Say Yes to refugees by raising funds through Run Melbourne for CatholicCare’s Refugee and Settlement Program. By joining Team CatholicCare you can make a Huge difference to the level of support we are able to offer clients like Bibe who arrived in Australia on a refugee visa and relies on programs like CatholicCare’s Refugee and Settlement Program for her family’s livelihood.

Bibe fled to Pakistan after war broke out in Afghanistan and her brother was taken by the Taliban. She arrived in Pakistan in 2000 with her husband and three children and they lived in a single 3x2 room which was to be their home for the next 13 years. In 2007 Bibe was widowed and became the sole bread winner for the family. After years of bad health and mental anguish, Bibe and her four teenage children were granted a refugee visa for Australia.

Life changed when Bibe and her family were introduced to CatholicCare’s Refugee and Settlement Program. Until then, they had no place to call home and were all struggling to learn English and fit into a new country. With CatholicCare as her advocates, Bibe was able to find a house, connect basic utilities; find furniture and get rugs and blankets to see her family through winter. Her children enrolled in mainstream high school – and for the first time in their life, they were sitting in a classroom and had smiles on their faces.

For more details on how you can support us in our run for refugees at Run Melbourne on 26th July 2015, visit www.ccam.org.au/runmelbourne. The event is a great opportunity to meet new people and have fun, all the while raising money to help CatholicCare continue its wonderful work with refugees like Bibe and her family.
