Compass - Small Town Welcome, A
When Tamworth said no to a group of African refugees the fallout touched a nerve in the Australian psyche. In this story Compass examines what happens when a community says 'yes'. The tiny NSW township of Dorrigo has opened its arms to a Sudanese family, with the help of the Sanctuary Refugee Foundation. How has this small white community been changed? What values lie at the heart of this compassion? Is there a price? What about the refugees themselves? What happens after the first flush of arrival wears off and the hard realities of life in a foreign land with a new language and culture, set in?
