Join with Avaaz and answer hate with humanity

What’s happening?

Refugees around the world are fleeing the terror in their countries and trying to make it to safer ground. They’re running from violence just as vicious as the attacks that have shaken Paris, Beirut, and Bamako. Yet they risk becoming tragic scapegoats unless we act now. More than ever, thousands of women, men, and children are arriving at Europe’s doorstep — hungry, exhausted, sick… only hoping that someone soon will just open one door, and the nightmare they’re fleeing from will be over. But harsh weather is setting in, and the prospect of a chilling winter of death isn’t moving governments to act. On the contrary, they’re building more and bigger fences to keep refugees out.

Avaaz’s efforts

We remain the key source of hope for those trapped by Europe’s shameful walls. If enough of us each chip in a small amount now, we can fund the UN Refugee Agency project to protect and transport thousands of people stranded along the border in the freezing cold to safe centres, and campaign to help shelter hundreds of vulnerable refugee families throughout the winter.

“The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.” – The UN Refugee Agency

Supporting Avaaz

Phoenix Rising For Children (PRFC) is an accredited out-of-home or foster care agency providing services in Sydney, including the greater metropolitan areas, Central Coast and parts of the Hunter region of NSW, Australia. PRFC was founded in 2001 to provide quality foster care to children and young people in NSW, including contemporary, quality, family-based foster care and effective and specialist support services to children and young people and their families. PRFC operates ethically, effectively and empathically with a view to achieving quality outcomes and a satisfying working environment, and as such we support organisations that encompass similar ideals.

Have you considered fostering a young one? PRFC undertakes regular planning and evaluation and has a focus on personal development and training. We are always interested in hearing from those passionate about making a meaningful difference for a child in foster care or a family requiring assistance. If you would like to become a foster carer and join our team providing effective and meaningful care to children and young people, please contact us!

We also provide family contact services, and these specialize in contact supervision for children in out of home care with their parents and other significant family members.
