When Covid-19 hit, Parliament on King, a small café in Sydney’s inner west, started serving food through their shopfront window to those in need.
The owner, Ravi Prasad, paid for the food from his own pocket and employed refugees to cook cuisine from their own country.
Now this window has been thrown wide open to become a hand of hope to the homeless and those struggling around Sydney.
Recently, a new space, Uma, has opened, taking refugees from the kitchen to the front of house, where they are also managing the business.
