Every year , ASRC Telethon on World Refugee Day (Saturday, 20th June) raises millions to provide hope and support to people seeking asylum. The Telethon celebrates the strength and resilience of refugees, and brings attention to the richness and diversity they add to Australia’s cultural identity while raising funds to enable the ASRC to support and empower people seeking asylum.
