In 2013 Dickson College began raising funds for one of its students, Soraj Ghulam Habib. Soraj had lost both his legs in a cluster bomb accident in his homeland of Afghanistan and was initially a student in the Refugee Bridging Program.
Thanks to the support of the Dickson College community, whilst Soraj was a student at the College, he underwent various medical procedures in relation to his disability, and had two prosthetic legs donated.
After a lot of intense rehabilitation, Soraj was later able to walk onto the stage unaided at the end of year graduation and receive his Year 12 Certificate.
Soraj is no longer a student at the College, but significant funds remain unspent.
As it is no longer appropriate for the College to continue to hold these funds, it is our intention to set up a Trust fund for Soraj, to assist with ongoing medical, therapeutic, rehabilitation and quality of life expenses.
Any further donations to support Soraj's ongoing medical, therapeutic, rehabilitation and quality of life expenses can be made directly to ACT Public Trustee from 1 August 2015.
Please contact the College Principal for further information.
