Wales says "Welcome" 

To celebrate Refugee Week we would like you to write a warm letter of welcome to a family of refugees who have recently arrived in Wales. You can write a long letter or a short note and post it in one of our special Nation of Sanctuary post boxes at any of our 23 Oxfam shops across Wales!

Or if you prefer you can write a welcoming e-mail, and send it to oxfamcymru@oxfam.org.uk.

To find your nearest Oxfam shops visit: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/local-shops

We want to see Wales become a Nation of Sanctuary and as part of this we want to make sure that refugees arriving here know they are safe and welcome. We will use the letters we receive to demonstrate in the media how warm and welcoming communities are across Wales, before we deliver them to refugee families in Wales.

These are some of the world's most vulnerable people, who have no choice but to flee because their homes have been destroyed and their lives torn apart. Your words could make a big difference.
