Walk a Mile With a Refugee

What is it about?

A wide range of refugees are constantly arriving in New Zealand. In our multicultural environment they blend in very well. They are invisible and largely unknown to us. So, here’s a great opportunity to meet some of these brave people and hear their back story. CNZBA in partnership with UNHCR are reaching out to the wider community of NZ to walk a mile with a refugee. We have groups meeting for this regularly in several locations.

Our Vision

To connect refugees within communities, building empathy and understanding. To gain inspiration from their stories and learn how we can help one another.

Funds and Donated Items

Money raised will help our refugee and migrant support service and the UNHCR in Australia to respond to refugee emergencies by providing displaced communities with ongoing assistance and protection. All items donated will be given directly to recent refugee families in New Zealand
