Ali Jafari, was a refugee from Iran where he grew up without happiness, security and without an identity. Ali ran away from his life and came to Australia. He suffered from depression and had always wished that one day he could help people get them out the mental illness. SACARE recognised the tough background that Ali had come from, and provided him with a job as a cleaner working in their mental illness facility. SACARE admired his work ethic, and compassion for the residents so much, that they supported his training so that he could become a support worker. He is now able to empower the mentally ill residents by sharing his story to enable them to find happiness just like he has. Compassion and understanding isn’t just what SACARE does, it’s who they are.
