Multicultural Men’s Group Celebrate Refugee Week 2021June 28, 2021 in MCCSA
In line with this year’s Refugee Week’s theme of Unity, the event kicked off with a friendly soccer match between Fouta FC & Horn of Africa FC followed by BBQ and a Q&A on Bior’s Aguer’s recently published book ‘Journal of a Refugee’.
Both teams did very well with Fouta FC clinching this year’s trophy.
Bior Aguer a young spoken word poet talked about his book and read one of his poems to the audience. It was an inspiring and touching performance from Bior, who migrated to Australia aged five.
The Multicultural Men’s Group would like to thank the Hon Zoe Bettison, Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Mayor Gillian Aldridge and Dennis Yengi, Chairperson for the African Communities Council of SA for attending the event.
We also appreciate the support from members of the Multicultural Men’s group to the success of the event. A big thank you to the Salisbury West Sports club for hosting us.
