Life and Faith: Longing for Home

Jarrod McKenna discusses the First Home Project which seeks to welcome refugees to the country.

Jarrod McKenna discusses the First Home Project which seeks to welcome refugees to the country.

The Immigration Department has a slogan on its website that declares “No Way. They will not make Australia home.” The slogan is aimed at deterring asylum-seekers from fleeing to Australia to establish a new life for themselves. Life and Faith spoke to Jarrod McKenna who is co-founder of First Home Project, which welcomes refugees and new arrivals to the country to live with Jarrod and his wife for a year so they can get established. Simon Smart also discusses the appeal that home holds for us.
