Baptcare treated me like a human. I was destroyed and homeless. I still have problems from my past, but Baptcare was safe, was therapy for me...teach me to change my mentality, to heal.
Sami – Former Sanctuary Resident
Sami fled from Lebanon because he feared for his life.
In this video he shares his journey as a Person Seeking Asylum in Australia and how his life has been transformed. From detention and homelessness to a life of hope and independence… Sami has recently received his protection visa and is now on track to soon becoming fully independent.
Please give a ‘Hand Up’ to People Seeking Asylum this Christmas, so they too can find hope, freedom and independence in Australia.
Providing a safe sanctuary
Every day I meet or hear from so many people seeking asylum like Hassan*. Many of them have escaped war-torn places. They’ve been tortured and brutalised. They’ve seen unspeakable things. Many of them flee with just the clothes on their backs. But no asylum seeker ever arrived in Australia with a house on their back. That’s why I’m asking for your help today.

I’ve always been a survivor. I survived so many adversities in my life, but why is it so bad this time? I feel like I’ve got nothing to cling onto.
