Episode Info:

Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees, and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society. In this episode I interview special guest, Zaki, to discuss what it's like to flee hardship and live life as a refugee. Zaki is a refugee from Afghanistan. After his father disappeared the Taliban then targeted Zaki to be killed. In 2013, only 17 years old, he escaped from Afghanistan and came to Australia by boat. He has spent the past few years on a bridging visa, studying English and being an inspirational activist for refugee rights, helping others who have had to endure the horrifying burden of seeking asylum. In this interview he opens up about his heart-rending journey of loss and faith, with the hope to help raise awareness of the plight of refugees around the world. You'll need your tissues for this moving story of courage and sacrifice. Thank you Zaki, you're a true inspiration.
