We are not here for pleasure, we are here for protection” These are very strong words from Abubakr Elgadi, a refugee from Sudan. These feelings are set against a backdrop of fear and vulnerability. Mr. Elgadi’s experience is one that we work hard to bring awareness of; that he did not come here because he wanted to, but fled out of fear for the life of his family.
Across Wales, the UK and Europe, migrants face a hostile environment that leads to fear, violence and discrimination. It is our job to counter this current of hostility to promote positive perceptions of migration and provide accurate information on migration. We work with arts organisations, academics and the media to tell the real story of migration.
