The Power of Good People

4 November 2017

Many of you know Para. Apollo Bay became a place for recovery for him after his dreadful ordeal. Para has since become an Australian citizen, was very recently joined by his wife and son in Geelong (after 8 years apart) and has just authored an incredible book about this whole amazing (sometimes horrifying and sometimes heart warming) experience together with Ali Corke.

The Power of Good People is being launched from Dubrovnik to Melbourne - and most places in between!

See this ABC Radio National Life Matters article "Seeking asylum and finding a pen pal: one man's story" and listen to the episode.

Also in The Age Good Weekend today Why this Tamil asylum seeker called an Apollo Bay teacher 'Mum'  and ABC News 'Refugee makes journey to thank Croatian captain who saved his life at sea'.

It’s just one more example of Apollo Bay being a very special place.
