"Refugees are not a number nor a problem but are persons, each of whom is
precious, each of whom has a story, each of whom makes a claim on us as
fellow human beings," writes Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ
. "In Australia some refugees have been accepted in
Australia from refugee camps. Others are not recognised as refugees.
Some are found in detention centres; others live in the community,
relying on charity for themselves and their families. Some still live
on Manus Island and on Nauru."
