> BUTETOWN IS BUILT ON WELCOME! We are proud of our multicultural life! At one time in its history, Butetown could boast fifty different languages. WE ARE NO STRANGERS TO STRANGERS!
> TODAY, there are millions of people in the world seeking refuge from danger. WE WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE! As a community, we are working together to WELCOME, HOUSE and SUPPORT a Syrian Refugee Family. Since the outbreak of the Civil War in March 2011, an estimated 11 million Syrians have fled their homes. NOW, 13.5 million are in need of humanitarian assistance.
> HERE IN BUTETOWN, the CHURCH OF ST MARY THE VIRGIN, THE SOUTH WALES ISLAMIC CENTRE, TABERNACL CHAPEL and OTHERS are rubbing shoulders and holding hands, working with CITIZENS UK in the COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP OF SYRIAN REFUGEES.
> BRINGING TOGETHER a lively group of people with an array of gifts and skills, we pledge to find suitable housing and provide evidence of our commitment and ability to the HOME OFFICE to be able to welcome and support a Syrian Refugee family. Oh, and we also need to raise at least £9,000!
