Description of charity's activities and outcomes
'Gifts for Manus and Nauru' supports our asylum seeker and refugee friends at Manus and Nauru through the sending of parcels of much needed items and through the provision of mobile phone credit.Access to communication (phone and internet) is extremely limited in the camps, and use is monitored. Gifts for Manus and Nauru aims to provide enough phone credit to allow a very basic level of access to communication for a month at a time, so that people at Manus and Nauru may be able to send forms and documents (eg. Medical consent and legal consent forms) when needed and have a minimum level of communication with family and other supports.Gifts for Manus and Nauru parcels are made up according to what is most important for the person/family in order to help them cope while waiting for freedom and safety.The people at Manus and Nauru have limited access to necessities such as clothing, shoes and toiletries, and extremely limited access to educational and entertainment devices and materials. The most common requests therefore include clothes and shoes, devices such as a television, e-reader or mp4 player, and books and toys for children.As of June 30 2016 there were 1063 people on the total 'client' list, with over 100 people having received parcels, and 894 people receiving top ups via the phone credit list.
