Constance on The Edge Screening

Contance on the EdgeConstance coming to Lismore

The new Australian documentary, Constance on the Edge, will be feature in a special Refugee Week screening at The Lismore Star Court Theatre on Friday 23 June at 6.30pm for 7pm screening.

Constance on the Edge follows charismatic Constance, mother of six, as she confronts her painful past in war torn Sudan, and risks everything in Australia so her family can thrive. Filmed over 10 years in Wagga Wagga, the documentary is an unflinchingly honest portrayal of one refugee family’s resettlement story in regional Australia.

“In Africa I was fighting for survival; in the refugee camp I was fighting for human rights; and here in Australia, I'm fighting for belonging."

We Say Thankyou

To our many friends, and members of Sanctuary Northern Rivers, we say thankyou for your support.

It may seem odd to say it, but we are in the pleasing position of having a depleted bank balance!   As I am sure many of you are aware, Sanctuary Northern Rivers primary modus operandi in distributing funds to support refugee settlement, and we provide no-interest loans, such that after settlement into our community, the new arrivals will pay back their loans in full over a period of time that is within their means.
