Ku-ring-gai council, in partnership with Wahroonga Rotary (among others), are proposing to produce welcome packs for Syrian refugees being settled in the area. It is anticipated that the majority of the estimated 6,000 who will be arriving in NSW will be women with young families and orphaned minors, so the welcome packs will be targeted correspondingly – toys, games, books, nappies, toiletries, school equipment etc..

I’m going to be going to an information evening on this project on November 16th, so expect more information thereafter!
