FWIN Visit to North West Migrants Forum for Refugee Awareness Event

Over sixty local women from Foyle Women’s Information Network spent their morning taking part in cross cultural training and partaking in a programme giving an insight into the lives of refugees from across the continents.

Our women listened to refugees’ stories on establishing newlives in this country while talking about their cultures and trying to build social networks with those in their new communities.

We were proud and delighted to see so many local women from such diverse groups in attendance and taking part in the NWMF workshops and programmes.

Each workshop focused on the importance of understanding and building social and cultural bridges between refugees and the local community; refugee and asylum seeker experiences in the country; and service provision for refugees and asylum seekers in the city and further afield.
