Hope for the "Forgotten" refugees of Manus and Nauru
Operation #NotForgotten is a campaign to provide safe resettlement for hundreds of desperate refugees who have been detained by the Australian government since 2013.
The project was initiated and developed by Canada Caring Society in June 2019 and is now being administered by MOSAIC.
Amnesty International has called them the "forgotten men of Manus." With this project, we want to demonstrate to them – and to the world – that they are NOT forgotten, that they deserve a future and that we won't give up until we get them to safety.
Operation #Not Forgotten is working to resettle these individuals through Canada's private sponsorship program. The goal of the project is to get all of them to a safe country where they can build a life and a future.
Volunteer teams from across Canada will provide settlement support. Teams will be trained and coordinated by MOSAIC to assist new arrivals with finding employment, accommodation, medical care, etc.
DONATIONS - In Canada, donations can be made to MOSAIC, a registered Canadian charity. A charitable tax receipt will be issued to Canadian donors.
