St Peter’s raises big funds for Syrian Refugees in Dunedin

St. Peter’s College in Auckland have generously chosen the Dunedin former refugees as the focus for their mission fundraising this year.  To date the students have raised over $8,000 in funds to provide the former refugees with resettlement assistance.  And they are not done yet!  They will be working hard in the next two terms to raise more funds. Jodi Kuran, teacher on the philosophy and theology faculty, and Damaris Kingdon, coordinator for the Edmund Rice network, were in Dunedin this month to make a connection with some of the people working on the ground with the former refugees; Fr. Ivica Gregurec (Anglican priest on the Dunedin Churches Welcome Refugees committee) and Pat Robertson (Red Cross Volunteer).
