Book Launch

In May 2023, ZamZam launched a new book to help refugees from Afghanistan understand their new life in Australia. ‘Getting to Know your New Home, Australia’ is a guide to Australia’s history, culture, social and political systems to¬†support newly arrived refugees from Afghanistan. The book was developed with support of the Social Policy Group and with the collaboration of the LexGlobal Partners.¬†

Be like the sun for grace and mercy.
Be like the night to cover others’ faults.
Be like running water for generosity.
