Introducing our keynote speaker, Dr Munjed Al Muderis


We're incredibly excited to announce that Iraqi refugee and renowned surgeon Dr Munjed Al Muderis will be our keynote speaker at the Ball.

Dr Al Muderis has amazing story of survival - from escaping Iraq under Saddam Hussein, arriving on a boat and spending time in detention, to becoming one of the world's top osseointegration surgeons. More than anything else, his is an example of the incredible contribution refugees can make to society.

We can't wait to hear his story at the Ball!

Son Veneno and C Major return to Refugee Ball


For those of you who love to dance, this year we're welcoming back our amazing performers C Major and Son Veneno.  And to keep things interesting, we'll be having a surprise performer join us this year - more on that soon!
