Para grew up in war torn Sri Lanka, and with his family, faced tragic consequences of violence and ruthless politics. He was thirty-one when he was rescued from the Indian Ocean while sailing to Australia to seek asylum. While in Christmas Island Detention Centre Para became penfriends with Alison Corke, a member of the Apollo Bay branch of Rural Australians for Refugees, in Victoria. On his release from detention in 2011, Para moved in with the Corke family.
Their book, The Power of Good People is the collaboration of Alison and Para, who will be the guest speakers at this event.
