At a mere 13 years old, Bassam Maaliki created a campaign called #uBelong. #uBelong was dedicated to ensuring that all refugees and migrants – no matter their background and ethnicity – feel a sense of belonging in Australia. Bassam sold key-shaped badges symbolising the “key to belong”, raising $10,000 for refugee support groups.
Through these achievements, Bassam has been able to share his philanthropic visions for society and his big ambitions for the #uBelong campaign.
“My intention is to continue to accelerate awareness of the #uBelong campaign, and share the cause with the broader Australian community.”
