The Sudanese Refugees at Work

Finding any kind of work has always been one of the biggest problems confronting African refugees during the early days of arrival in Australia. But, now, there is a good enough reason for optimism.

Recently, 25 Sudanese refugees were offered employment at the local meat works in the City of Murray Bridge – 80km east of Adelaide, South Australia. More recruits may soon follow!

The good news is that the vibrant Murray Bridge community, where residents enjoy a prosperous lifestyle, has welcomed the Africans with open arms.

Meanwhile, Nayano Taylor-Neumann of the Lutheran Community Care Refugee Services in Murray Bridge is working closely with the new arrivals; helping them to make sense of the world around them and providing resettlement services.
