As human beings, our most important duty in this world is to help our fellow beings i.e. to serve others without any expectation. It is not what we can get from the world, but rather what we can give back to others that determine the quality of our life. There are two types of poverty, one is due to lack of food, clothing and shelter and the other is caused by lack of compassion and love. Of these two, the second one is the most important, for when we have love and compassion in our hearts, then we will wholeheartedly serve those who suffer from lack of food, shelter and clothing.

With this concept in the fore front, SEWA Australia has been serving the community since 1996. SEWA started with migrant settlement services, addressing grief and loss, strengthening the family with early intervention, all of which has made a practical difference in people’s everyday lives giving them a better chance to develop and face the future, with confidence and a new found inner strength.

SEWA’s help and support is given in a personal and respectful way so as not to undermine the dignity of the individual or family receiving the support. All personal information and matters are kept confidential.
