Aussies in the USA helping Nauru + Manus Refugees

Donate to our Laptop fund

For the first few months of the New Year, Ads-Up Refugee Network is focusing on providing affordable laptops to refugees from Manus and Nauru who have resettled in the USA.

Most refugees live paycheck to paycheck and struggle to save – we want to help them with an investment in their future. 

An affordable laptop allows young refugees to study, improve their English, develop computer skills and apply for better-paying jobs. 

Please Donate to our Laptop Fund or email Contact(at) if you would like to send a second-hand laptop directly to a refugee, or make a purchase to be sent directly through Amazon.

About Ads-UP

Ads-Up is a network of Australians in the USA working to support the 1,250 refugees being resettled here under the US-Australia refugee deal. 

The us Government provides 90 days of limited assistance to new refugees – after that, they’re on their own.

We aim to fill the gap. 

We're mobilising the great Aussie diaspora to do what our governments would not: create a network of social support and provide necessary financial assistance.
