Over five million Syrians have been forced to flee the conflict to date and even more have been displaced within Syria. More than 10,000 Syrian refugees have arrived in the United Kingdom where they have been welcomed and supported by many, including our own Methodist churches and other faith communities.
Syrian people have always been our neighbours, but now they are part of our Churches, our communities and our nation. As a result we are more aware than ever of the devastating impact that war has on families and individuals.
