As part of our community partner AMES Australia’s refugee week activities, our CEO Angus McKay was part of a conversation with Aamer and Hilal Alashkar.
Aamer and Hilal fled Syria in 2014 and have now established the Green Valley Middle Eastern Food Store in Melbourne.
The Refugee Week Conversation Live Streams are an annual activity run by AMES Australia, which raise awareness about the challenges refugees face and celebrate the contribution refugees have made to the Australian community.
AMES Australia was established over 60 years ago to help resettle migrants and refugees, assisting them to live, learn and work in their new home.
Since 2018, 7-Eleven’s Good Cause program has worked to support migrants and refugees through a partnership with AMES Australia. We provide financial assistance to support AMES Australia programs, and our team members participate in a range of volunteering activities with AMES Australia clients.
