Fathia, Mohammed and Kate – world refugee day

Fathia, Mohammed, Kate cropped 3 2015-06-06

Fathia escaped the war in Yemen with her two babies, to then spend 12 years as a refugee family in Ethiopia waiting for a new country. She had never heard of new Zealand but after requesting a “peace country” she and her family arrived in Wellington about 10 years ago. To celebrate World Refugee Day New Zealand we will have a chat with Fathia, her son Mohammed and Kate Miller, their volunteer support person about their experience of settling into Wellington. The answers are not what I thought and every kiwi needs to hear this.

“Wellington is one of five main centers that accepts refugees and currently we take twice our National share” Murdoch Willliams
