Visiting the asylum seekers is a heart opening experience every time.
This event is not aimed to be a political campaign or a political act, this event is aimed to be an opportunity to connect and support.
It is such a simple thing for us to do, and it can make such a difference and bring much happiness and a fresh breeze of hope to the lives of many.
This is an opportunity to spend some time, share space and stories with detained people that are here to seek asylum and refuge.
In the centre there are people from many backgrounds, some of them have been detained for 6 years! None of them have been charged with any crime.
We will share space in a big hall with lots of tables and chairs, we just mingle connect and let the magic happen.
We plan to meet at 4pm at the reception that leads to the visiting hall.
Visiting hours are from 2pm until 8pm. If you are unable to join us at our arranged time you are welcome to join us later.
