People seeking asylum in Victoria are struggling to pay for essential medications. As they are not eligible for concession prescription medications, the cost is often more than they can afford.

The pandemic has meant that many more people than usual who are seeking asylum have no income at all. With no eligibility for Government subsidies, paying for essentials is becoming increasingly difficult.

Connections is a group of people from Manningham Uniting Church, who seek to support people seeking asylum and who want to assist them to access  prescription medications.

Money raised will go to support the EACH Asylum Seeker Emergency Medication Fund, which is currently experiencing more demand than it is able to meet. The situation is urgent. Please give generously!
