Purna Bahadur Gurung, aged 32, arrived through the Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP) and is working full-time at a city hotel where his role includes housekeeping. Prior to commencing employment eight months ago, he completed his AMEP studies and a Certificate III in Hospitality. He was born in Bhutan and lived in a Nepal refugee camp for 28 years. He resettled in Australia in late 2018 with his wife and child. He was sponsored by a relative. Purna is grateful to the government and other services, as well as the AMRC for assisting to support his sponsor and to find a rental property. Purna’s wife is linked to the AMRC Women’s Empowerment Program.
