Show your support for the local Afghan community here in Geelong

Diversitat continues to be concerned as we watch the situation in Afghanistan.

Over the past few weeks, our staff have worked closely with the Afghan communities in Geelong and Colac, and we share their apprehension and distress as we see the scenes out of Kabul.

We have been listening to the community as they articulate their needs and how we can best offer support at this time.

We understand that many people in the broader community would also like to show their support, which is why we have created this page with information and resources for how you can help.

If you are in a position to donate, financial contributions can go a long way.

Here are the agencies operating in Afghanistan:
