Serving all Arabic Speaking Communities

Dr Richard Abicair

Dr Richard Abicair


Arabic Welfare was initially the brainchild of Dr Abicair and he is one of the founders who worked closely with funding bodies to establish our organisation. He has links with all sections of the Arabic community and has a demonstrated willingness to work for the community on a non-sectarian and non-political basis.

Richard has been awarded the Order of Australia Medal in acknowledgement of his contribution to welfare services for the diverse communities of Arabic speaking backgrounds, spanning a period of over 28 years. He has been President of Arabic Welfare’s Committee of Management for over 20 years, and has vast experience in both the business sector and the welfare sector.
