‘Gifts for Manus and Nauru’ supports our asylum seeker and refugee friends at Manus and Nauru through sending parcels of much needed items (clothes, shoes, dental and medical items, educational/ entertainment items etc), and through the provision of mobile phone credit.
Phone credit provides vital support for mental and emotional health by allowing contact with family, as well as giving access to medical, legal, media and advocacy support in Australia.
100% of your donation goes towards either paying for parcels/postage or to phone credit. Any contribution you can make will be very welcome.
Parcels are put together depending on the person/family’s individual needs.
There are various ways to contribute to parcels.
You can ask for details of a person that you can buy for yourself, which involves buying various needed items depending on the person’s needs, and arranging postage to him/her. (it’s a considerable cost though).
If you cannot afford a whole parcel you can also buy needed items and have them delivered to us to be included in parcels we send.
You can also contribute financially by donating money towards the parcels our group are putting together (See the ‘How to donate’ page for bank details). There are always at least several parcels (usually more) on the go needing donations to complete and get sent…and a long list of people waiting for parcels.
Contributing to phone credit for people at Manus and Nauru is another way of helping. This is an ongoing and urgent need.
If you would like to do a top up directly to a person at Manus or Nauru we can send you the phone number at the top of the waiting list that is needing topping up, and the instructions of how to do the top up.
One month of phone credit is $35 for Manus numbers and $30 for Nauru numbers.
Donations for phone credit, of any amount, can also be made into the ‘Phone Credit’ bank account or via Paypal/credit card (see the ‘How to donate’ page for bank/paypal/credit card donations). We then use the donations to complete the top ups.
If any of this interests you and you would like more information, please send a message to email@example.com.
