    Work of BMRSG – Donations help those seeking asylum apply for visas

    Recent appeals by BMRSG for donations to assist asylum seekers with legal fees associated with visa applications have raised over $13,000, thanks to the generosity of so many caring people.
    The Dept of Immigration has been writing to asylum seekers living in the community demanding that they put in applications for TPVs (Temporary Protection Visas) or SHEVs (Safe Haven Enterprise Visas) within 30 or 60 days, or risk losing all their sources of income, such as Centrelink payments.Read more →
