Refugee Aid Appeal

Sanctuary Australia Foundation

Sanctuary Australia Foundation Inc raises funds to give direct assistance to refugees (mostly women and children) existing in squalid refugee camps.

How will the funds be used?

SANCTUARY sponsors and assists refugees. All donations are used with care and integrity to provide direct assistance to refugees who are in desperate need of help.

Those refugees we sponsor who are fortunate enough to be accepted for an unfunded Australian Humanitarian 202 visa are provided with an interest-free Sanctuary travel loan to get to Australia.



 Once settled here, the family gradually repays the loan, over 2 to 3 years ,and this money is is then "re-cycled " to assist another needy family. It works really well, respects peoples dignity, and every dollar given is used over and over again to help others in need of this vital help.

Key Areas of Expenditure

Funds are used mainly for the Sanctuary Travel Loan Fund .These loans are repaid, interest-free, to be re-cycled and used again to help refugees.

A small amount of funding is used to provide direct life support to sponsored refugee families who are in urgent need of medical or food aid.

Sanctuary also has an education fund to directly assist refugee children who have a right to basic education, but have no access to it without our help. Our on- the- ground partner in South Kivu, DR Congo, oversees the Program, and every dollar is carefully used to help as many children as possible. $50 a year will cover one child's education, and this provides great joy to each fortunate child !

Are donations tax deductible? Yes

Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
