The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is Australia's leading advocate for asylum seekers. Based in Melbourne, Victoria, the ASRC are an independent organisation delivering direct services to some of the most disadvantaged people in our community. More than half of their clients have no income at all, and nearly 90% live below the poverty line. Struggling to make it from day to day without healthcare or settlement services, they face destitution and adversity.
The ASRC responds through in-house provision of essential items such as bedding, nappies and phone cards. Their ‘supermarket model’ Foodbank gives asylum seekers the autonomy to select food. You can help by creating a subscription or purchasing a one-off donation here, which supplies women with sanitary pads through the Foodbank who’d otherwise go without.
Your generous donations make ongoing menstrual dignity possible for these women. These product donations can be tax deductible through the ASRC, and all donations are sent directly to the centre. Thank you!
