Cultural Perspectives were excited to be working at the Make Healthy Normal Zone Refugee Week event run by SydWest yesterday20 June at Blacktown RSL, promoting healthy eating and active living to newly arrived communities in Australia.
18-24 June is Refugee Week in Australia. Refugee Week aims to promote a culture of welcoming to refugees across the country. To help people better understand the challenges of each different community and how it is important that there is a successful integration of refugees, that assists them in belonging and living safely. It is a unique opportunity for us to understand this special group of people and to appreciate the value they add to cultural diversity in Australia.
