Ways to Donate:

Circle of Friends assists refugees and asylum seekers with their daily living expenses when hard times hit: like being cut off any government benefits; losing jobs; excessive fines when road rules aren’t understood; funerals; excessive bills in the early settlement stages before the Australian systems are understood; medical expenses when people have no medicare or no income or simply can’t afford dentists.

We also assist in asylum seekers applying for protection visas or going to court for reviews, and we assist refugees to bring their families to join them in Australia
. Circles have supported many families bring orphan relatives, spouses and children to join them. Helping at the crucial times has meant they can get here from unsafe situations. We have also helped men visit their families when there is no chance of them being able to join them here with our unjust laws.

All these efforts need financial support. All the donations and fundraising produce results on the ground for individuals and families. Help us to continue this work by making a donation today.

Circle of Friends Australia is registered with the Australia Taxation Office as a Public and Benevolent Body and with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission as a charity with tax deductible receipting status for donations. Our ABN is 39 367 145 336.

Please note: If you wish to donate furniture or household goods to refugees please list them on the Facebook group page “Adelaide Refugee Support“. You have to ask to join then you can post photos and descriptions of your items. Alternatively, you can donate them to charities some of whom will collect like Salvos and Vinnies. Or you can give them to Lions and Rotary sheds who take a wider variety of items than the charities. Thank you for wanting to donate to refugees but COFA does not have any storage to be able to accept furniture or household good.
