Refugee Resettlement in Wellington

Each year, 750 former refugees come to New Zealand under the refugee quota. Families arrive in New Zealand and stay in the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre in Auckland for a 6 week orientation to the country. Families then move to their homes throughout New Zealand and are supported by a network of government.
