Ali Masumi is a former refugee who is now an emergency services volunteer with Red Cross in Brisbane. "When I came to Australia in 2012, Red Cross helped me move on with my life. In my own way, I just wanted to give something back to Australian society," he says.

Red Cross provides support for refugees, asylum seekers, people who may have been trafficked or forced into marriage, and those who've been separated from their loved ones by disaster or conflict. We work with people regardless of how they arrived in Australia and regardless of their immigration status because we believe that everyone deserves the right to the basic necessities of life, dignity and respect.
