Family safely arrived!
Our first sponsored family have arrived from the Turkish refugee camp where they have been living for the past two years. To respect their privacy we cannot give too many details, but are keen to keep you updated about the amazing things your support has enabled.
The family expressed their joy at arriving in London, and their thanks for the pre-arrival information sent by ERW - they had more info than other families attending the resettlement / cultural briefings who were going to other countries. They like their new home and slept well on their first night here. Mum was delighted with the Mother’s Union Welcome pack and the cooked meal awaiting them. The children loved the clothes hanging in the wardrobe for them.
The family are looking forward to learning English and the children immediately began practicing greetings, goodbyes and elementary phrases they had already learnt. The children are very much looking forward to going to school and were even a little disappointed to hear that they would have to wait until September. Their interests include football and swimming.
