Aline’s Story

Originally from Democratic Republic of the Congo, Aline came to Australia after spending years in a refugee camp in Sudan.

She arrived in Australia heavily pregnant with her baby girl, while her husband – whom she’d met in the refugee camp – remained in Sudan due to COVID restrictions at the time, prolonging his stay.

Starting from scratch in Australia as a new mother while separated from her husband brought Aline numerous challenges. However, her bond with her daughter and the joy she found in motherhood gave Aline the resilience and determination to rebuild her life while waiting for her husband to join them.

Aline says, “I look forward to teaching my daughter to work hard.  We can fulfil our dreams if we are determined enough, thanks to the opportunity we have here in Australia.”

Aline now lives in Toowoomba with her family.

Refugee Week 2024 Graphic Motif

Across our Refugee Week 2024 designs, we have used the motif of a kite string arranged in the shape of human figures to reflect this year’s theme, Finding Freedom: Family. Like the string of a kite, families give us the courage we need to fly as well as a safe path back to the ground. The loops of our graphic motif allude to heads and shoulders – figures that represent family.
