Introduction / History

Before the end of the 1970s a few Afghans came to Australia for education. Many more came in the next decade due to Russia taking control of Afghanistan and also later because of the Afghan civil war. A lot of them are in professional work like the law and medical work.

Most Afghans live in Sydney and Melbourne. Fewer numbers live in Perth and Brisbane. More Afghans have come to live in Australia this century. Some have come from New Zealand.

In the late 1800s, the British sent Afghans to Australia to use camel transport. These Afghan cameleers worked in the more desolate interior parts of Australia where camels were used until roads and railways replaced them in the 1930s. These Afghans transported food and other items to faraway places and made a major contribution here with the building of these regions of Australia.

The Afghans made a big contribution to bringing Islam to Australia. Mosques have been built in Australia that Afghans go to. There are a small number of Afghan Christians in Australia.

The Afghans in Australia speak Dari and other Afghan languages. The Pashtuns speak Pashto. There are two schools for Afghan young people in Sydney which are used on Saturdays.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the Afghan Christians will lead the other Afghans in Australia to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that the troubles in Afghanistan will cause them to seek the meaning of life and lead them to Salvation too.
