Imagine a place where diversity is celebrated and support is happily given. Well, this is the reality at the Refugee-run Café called ‘The Four Brave Women’ at Summer Hill NSW.
There’s always something to look forward to as they change their menu every two months as a new group of refugees take charge at the kitchen and provide their culture’s favourite dishes.
It is also a great way to meet and welcome refugees face to face and learn about their culture and their stories while enjoying delicious food.
“The idea for the cafe came out of seeing that people really want to support refugees, particular in the inner west, but there’s often not a lot of ways to tangibly do it,” says national manager Bindi Lea.
Founded by fellow Refugee women who want to help others who are struggling; being refugees themselves, helping the refugee community was something really close their heart.
This initiative gives the refugee community the skills, confidence and supportive community they need to have a positive jumpstart in their new home, Australia.
