Celebrate Refugee Welcome in Derry-Londonderry

In May 2016 Derry-Londonderry welcomed 11 Syrian Refugee families from Syria who have since made Derry-Londonderry their home! However, there are refugees who made Derry-Londonderry their home in the recent years.  To celebrate and show our appreciation to everyone who played a key role to welcome and support refugees and to celebrate Derry-Londonderry as a multicultural place,  North West Migrants Forum are organising an intercultural and communication celebration event showcasing some of the diversity that exists in Derry-Londonderry.
