About those supported
All those supported by Bridge are people who have fled their home countries. They are represented by reputable lawyers and have either applied for protection in Australia or are in the process of so doing. Before receiving our support, their financial situation will have been reviewed to show insufficient funds to survive.
With people from so many countries being subjected to persecution, human rights abuses and torture, it is not surprising that our clients come from most parts of the world. In the last financial year, our clients came from 34 countries in Central and South America, northern and sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Oceania, and South, South East and East Asia.
