The City of Sanctuary has joined other charities such as Refugee Council, Oxfam and The Children’s Society in an open letter calling on the Prime Minister to respond to the UNCHR appeal for European countries to offer sanctuary for Syrian Refugees.

Countries bordering Syria have shown great compassion in providing for the hundreds of thousands of refugees and it is vital that we share this burden before borders are closed to thousands fleeing Syria. The Independent has published the story.

The public version of the letter and a UNHCR fact sheet on resettlement is attached which you may find helpful to spread the word and gain support for this issue.
