Life and Faith: Longing for Home

Jarrod McKenna discusses the First Home Project which seeks to welcome refugees to the country.

The Immigration Department has a slogan on its website that declares “No Way. They will not make Australia home.” The slogan is aimed at deterring asylum-seekers from fleeing to Australia to establish a new life for themselves. Life and Faith spoke to Jarrod McKenna who is co-founder of First Home Project, which welcomes refugees and new arrivals to the country to live with Jarrod and his wife for a year so they can get established. Simon Smart also discusses the appeal that home holds for us.
