Supporting refugees

$30,033 raised of $50,000 goal
$30,033 raised of $50,000 goal

June is the time of the year when it is good to take stock of how our supporter’s energies and donations have been used throughout the financial year as we ask people to keep supporting us with their precious energy and tax deductible donations. 

BMRSG provides friendship and practical support for refugees and people seeking asylum. Friendships often continue long after the need for practical support, enriching everyone involved so it is hard to be exact however this financial year

  • Around 60 refugee households, living in the community have been in contact with BMRSG for friendship and help such as English conversation, sporting activities, help with legal issues, bureaucracy, tax, landlords and employment. 
  • ·        36 of these households were families who received practical assistance such as food, phones help with school issues, utilities and rent. 
  • ·       These families include 77 children
  • ·        11 of these families were single parent families headed by women with 21 children between them.
  • ·        11 single men from these households received practical assistance for food, phones, rent and medications


  • 20 people seeking asylum in detention in Australia were in contact with BMRSG via messenger, face book and email. Some we have been in contact with for 10 years. With COVID we have only been able to visit a few. BMRSG assisted with mobile phones, phone re-charging, warm clothing, presents at Christmas and legal assistance.

All of this work involves enormous amounts of energy from our army of committed volunteers for which we give grateful thanks. It also needs money.

All donations over $2 to BMRSG inc. are tax deductable. As all our administration is covered by membership payments every dollar goes directly to support refugees. So please give generously.
