Seeking & Sharing Family
May and Khalid immigrated with their children to Australia from Iraq. They first became a Seeking family as they wanted assistance to learn more about Australian Culture. They then wanted to give back to the community and became a Sharing family with Family by Family 3 years ago.
They feel it’s very important for them to be a part of the Australian community as this is where they have made their home. May set up a Multicultural women’s group in 2013 in her Local Council to help other women who feel isolated have a community.
“I feel that I can give more and learn more when I’m with Family by Family. Before I was isolated and didn’t know anything about Australian culture. It has given me more confidence and given my young daughters’ more confidence socialising outside the family.”
As a family, May, Khalid and their children work with many new arrival seeking families each year to share their knowledge of culture and systems. They are a fun loving, happy and friendly family and they enjoy meeting people from all cultures.
