DID YOU KNOW?

  • Over 20% of Australians were born in another country – half of whom are from non–English speaking backgrounds. Combined with their Australian–born children, they constitute 40% of the population. It’s estimated that by the year 2056, 87% of the population growth in Australia will be through migration.

  • Annually, there are over 400,000 international students studying at Australian universities. In Brisbane, 1 in 4 uni students are from overseas. Many of them have never been in an Australian home.

  • 75% of the young people in youth detention are from an indigenous background.

  • A recent study reported that depression levels among refugees in Australia is twelve times higher than the national average. Anxiety levels are fourteen times higher. They discovered that depression and anxiety only increased over time, not decreased.

HOW CAN WE HELP?

Village Mosaix is not looking to replace government or non-government organisations in their effort to support these groups of people. Rather, we are hoping to bridge the gap between their services and each individual by providing the practical care and support that is sometimes lacking.

CREATE
We want to build, organise, and utilise a trusted network of groups and individuals who are willing to offer their skills and support to help the most vulnerable in our community.

PROVIDE
We wish to extend practical care where needed, whether through the giving of food, clothing, blankets, white goods, furniture, job seeker support, immigration issues or any other help individuals might be seeking.

MAINTAIN
Our aim is to sustain these relationships by giving holistic care, whether through friendship, community integration, emotional or spiritual support.
