Aunty’s Ginger Tonic is a refreshing ginger drink, made from all natural and organic ingredients and inspired by a family recipe from Sierra Leone. Its creator, Yarrie Bangura, fled her war-torn home in Sierra Leone when she was just eight. She settled down in Australia with her family as a refugee.
To Yarrie, Aunty’s Ginger Tonic isn’t a business: it’s a symbol of her past, her future and the power of community. Through her business, Yarrie strives to give back to her fellow Australians and to inspire others in the refugee community to follow their dreams.
