Our 2 Worlds 2 Words campaign highlights the story of our refugee and migrant community leaving behind their world to come to a new world, Australia. In some ways they are still living in two worlds. 2 Worlds 2 Words is a project that asks us to share two words of hope, strength, confidence or advice for both newly arrived and established individuals.
During an amazing few hours at Coffee with a Cop, Fairfield, we were able to capture some amazing words from the the attendees.

“Be yourself” are two words of advice and encouragement, shared by refugees like yourself, who are making a new home in Australia. Hopefully, these words will offer some guidance and inspiration to help you live a happier and healthier life. Welcome to 2 Worlds 2 Words.
Domestic Violence is against the law in Australia. Domestic Violence creates an unhealthy environment for all those involved.
For children at home, this can have a negative impact on their wellbeing, physically, mentally and emotionally. Building up the courage to speak out can be difficult and frightening, but it is important that you do so. Staying silent will only allow the situation to continue and possibly get worse. As a community, we must speak out against Domestic Violence. Download our brochures in English and Arabic.
