City of Sanctuary meets Save Me Campaign

City of Sanctuary Sheffield hosted a group of visitors from a similar movement in Germany to share experiences about welcoming refugees. The ‘Save Me’ campaign enlists volunteers to lobby the government to take more refugees into the country. It is active in 56 cities and the Minister has recommended that the Government distributes new refugees to those places where people have reacted positively to the campaign.
During their visit to Sheffield the Save Me campaigners and others working with refugees in Munich attended an awareness raising session and joined in a Cafe Rendez-vous event (see photo) with French language students and francophone refugees.
