Thank you to all the students and staff who generously donated essential groceries for families seeking asylum across Melbourne.

We have donated these goods to the Brigidine Asylum Seeker Project (BASP). BASP was established by the Brigidine Sisters in 2001 to work for a humane, just and inclusive approach for people seeking asylum in Australia.

Their motto, ‘Strength and Kindess’, is akin to our Mercy values of justice and compassion. At OLMC, we stand in solidarity with individuals seeking asylum, treating them with dignity and respect.

The goods were delivered to the BASP Headquarters in Albert Park on Tuesday and will be distributed to families seeking asylum who will greatly appreciate these essential daily food items.
