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.
