Your gift card will help to support vulnerable people seeking asylum, and people who have been granted temporary refugee protection living in the wider Geelong region who have no access to government income support.

This will be done through The Welcome Place, a volunteer run program of Wesley Church Geelong which offers information and referrals, activities, English practice, job-seeking support and emergency relief through a food bank ensuring access to food during periods of unemployment, underemployment, or illness.
