Impossible Decisions: Housing or Health
How can anyone choose?
Medicines or rent? Paying for food or bills?
These are the decisions many families seeking asylum have to make while they find their feet in Australia.
Choosing between safe housing and paying for medicines shouldn’t be a decision that anybody has to make. But unfortunately, it is an impossible decision that people seeking asylum and refugees often have to face because their basic human rights continue to be denied by our Government.
You can help the ASRC provide relief for families that otherwise would lack essential medications or be at risk of homelessness in the cold months of winter.
