The Slushies have started a petition to help one of our own, Murtaza Hassan.
Murtaza, is grateful for the opportunity he has been granted and has become an active community leader living in Sydney on a Temporary Protection Visa, whilst his citizenship application progresses. He demonstrates the values of care, fun, friendship, belonging and acceptance through his involvement with Lord Somers Camp and Power House, sharing a common affinity to creating a stronger, more inclusive society through service to others.
His family has not been so fortunate. They were stranded in Afghanistan, and due to rising Taliban violence have been forced to flee to Pakistan as illegal refugees, where they live with no rights, no access to education, employment or healthcare. They are living under the fear of deportation which could lead to imprisonment or death.
Your support is required to petition the Australian Federal Government to assist in facilitating the urgent resettlement of Murtaza’s parents and seven siblings. https://www.change.org/p/bring-murtaza-s-family-to-safety?recruiter=1016479483&recruited_by_id=08e6c4e0-0070-11ea-869f-4d35ecfa1408&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=petition_dashboard
