The Brigidine Asylum Seekers’ Project (BASP) in Melbourne draws its inspiration from the words and teaching of Jesus – “I was a stranger and you welcomed me…” (Matthew 25).
The Project (BASP) is a Kildare Ministries community work in the Brigidine tradition. BASP aims to:
* provide hospitality and practical support for people seeking asylum
* actively network with like-minded individuals & groups who are working for justice for asylum seekers
* promote advocacy for the rights of asylum seekers
* raise awareness of asylum seeker issues and concerns through a range of activities.
