Hiraeth Hope is a West Wales based community group that is offering refugees and asylum seekers in Swansea the chance to go on a short holiday or break and to be well looked after by hosts and the community. All costs are covered, and they are working towards providing new homes for those that would want to join them in their rural setting. If you are a refugee needing a short holiday, one still overseas looking for a home in rural Wales, or a local person wanting to help in some way, then please do contact them.
