Auckland Refugee Family Trust (ARFT) has been assisting refugee background

families reunite for five years now. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far. As you can see from the graphic below we’ve helped 35 families get back together.

We’ve noticed a dip in applications this year. We think it’s because Immigration NZ are being more stringent in their requirement for applicants to provide “a credible accommodation plan”. With the tight housing situation in Auckland, this is a tall order.

Without ARCC’s forethought, in urging us to establish ARFT, it’s highly likely that none of these families would be together or if they were, they would be burdened with debt.
