“Their life here is not easy. Most of their families are outside of Australia, they are waiting for their visa status here, they don't know if or when they can get their permanency here. There are a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of stress for them. I talk about my problems here and I believe it brings a benefit for both sides. We find that we're not alone in the problems we face, it decreases the pressure and stress.” – Saeed.
Saeed came to Australia from Iran in 2012 with his wife and two sons. He now runs a community garden program to help other newly arrived refugees and people seeking asylum find friendship and make social connections.
