“What I’ve learnt from being a mentor in the Baptist Care SA Friendship Program, is that mentors gain just as much as the refugees in the program. I’d really encourage others to be involved because it’s very rewarding and it’s a good way to contribute to making somebody feel welcome and comfortable in Australia.”

Kyra, mentor
