Art Competition among the participants of Resettlement programs
EYST, the Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team based in Swansea in Wales in the UK, support BME people across Wales. They recently hosted a celebration to mark the end of the 5 year Syrian Refugee Resettlement Programme with a zoom party inaugurated by Swansea’s Lord Mayor, Mark Child. The very first Syrian families arrived back in February 2016. Now 5 years on they are indeed happily resettled to Swansea which is also celebrating 10 years of being a City of Sanctuary.
