On the 29th April a number of African people from the Demoncratic Republic of Congo, Liberia and South Sudan met at the Heights Community Centre.
Charles Kitapundu from Mercy Family Services spoke on the need for new African arrivals to meet non-African Australians, and integrate.
Corrinee McPhee from Uniting Care Community informed everyone on details related to finding a job in Australia, and explained the disability employment service in Australia.
The food was primary traditional Congolese, with some Australian bush food (kangaroo) included. Regarding the food, feedback from everyone that attended was unanimous – African food is delicious!
For some Australians who attended it was the first time they had met people from Africa, and they said they were very impressed by the African culture and hospitality shown on the day.
