David Lee Granted Permanent Residency VISA

Posted on: Wed 28 Jun 2017

After ten years of fighting for his residency, Adelaide-based Malaysian immigrant David Lee has finally been granted a permanent residency VISA.

Despite being blind since birth, David has studied music, lived independently and made significant contributions to our community since he arrived in 2007 – and yet the government still made it near impossible for him to gain residency.

Dignity for Disability Kelly Vincent MLC has been supporting and championing his campaign from the beginning. 

David joined Jennie Lenman this morning to speak about his experiences, listen in to the full interview here.
