Melbourne City Mission
Nonprofit caring for Hassan Asif



As the community organisation
caring for Hassan Asif, we welcome the Australian Government’s decision
to grant visitor visas to Mr Asif’s mother and brother.

Bruinhout, Director of Homelessness and Justice Services, said
preparations are underway to get the family on a plane to Australia as
soon as possible, in order to honour Hassan’s wish to have his mother
and brother by his bedside as he receives end-of-life care in Melbourne.

‘‘I want to thank the government of Australia and all the people of
Australia and Melbourne City Mission for supporting me with my case.
And allowing me to be with my Mum and my brother. Thank you so much’’ Mr
Asif said regarding the decision. 

Australian authorities in
Pakistan last week rejected the family’s initial application to travel
to Australia to be by Hassan’s side. 

“On behalf of Hassan,
Melbourne City Mission would like to thank the Australian Government for
their willingness to re-examine the family’s visa application,” Ms
Bruinhout said.

“Everyone involved is grateful that Australian
authorities in Pakistan were willing to consider the new information we
were able to present to them. We also wish to thank the Minister for
Immigration and Border Protection, Peter Dutton, and his staff for their compassionate response.

“Melbourne City Mission also expresses gratitude to the thousands of
Australians who have sent Hassan messages of support and offered their
time and resources to help Hassan to be reunited with his family. We are
a great country.”
