  1. Good on you Oscar , for standing up!
    As a volunteer with our refugee community for 20 years, I support an increase in our intake but the easy part is changing the number. If we do so, we must massively increase the support, both financial and personal. The three month period of support offered through the NZ Red Cross should be double that and public education should make people understand that settlement is often an extended and difficult process. Older refugees often do not find suitable work and become very disheartened. Kiwis need to stretch out a helping hand over years not just weeks.
