A memorable visit

On May 29th members from JAA’s Sudanese Leadership, Empowerment, Advocacy & Development (LEAD) Program visited Parliament house in Victoria.

We spent an hour talking with The Hon Nicholas Kotsiras – Minister for Multicultural Affairs and David Southwick about the issues facing the Darfuri and Nubian communities in Victoria.  We then had a fantastic tour of Parliament House.

Thank you so much to David Southwick for organising the visit and for being so hospitable. The leaders gained so much from the experience.

“Thank you very much for the great efforts that you people have done to bring Nuba and Darfur issues out to the Australian communities and the international community.  On behalf of my Nation I would like to put my appreciation to what JAA have done and still doing to support the Nuba and Darfur communities” – Haroun Kafi, General Officer for Nuba Mountains International Association of Australia – Victoria Branch
