Men's breakfast held for refugees

ABOUT 40 men gathered at the Utopia Cafe in Kingaroy on Saturday morning to hear about what they could do to support refugees from Middle Eastern countries.

Barnabus Fund Australian managing director Colin Johnston spoke about the work Barnabus is doing for Christian refugees.

Event organiser Nelson Diamond said he thought the event was a success.

"Colin informed us about what has happened in Syria and how people have suffered,” he said.

"Everyone that came is from all different denominations of Christianity and some people that just came along to listen.

"I hope it's opened peoples eyes, we live in such a good country, we have everything, a lot of people in other countries, particularly the Middle East, don't have anything.

"Some of the stories that we've heard of resilience and people wanting to help people has been inspiring.”
