Welcome to the Syrian Refugees

Welcome to Wellington,

Nau mai, haere mai

To our new brothers and sisters from Syria.  We look forward to receiving the many gifts, strengths and life experiences you bring to us – together we will all be so much better off – an alive, inclusive, diverse, generous, welcoming city.  Absolutely positively Wellington.

Over the past weeks, many Challenge 2000 staff, volunteers and young leaders have been collecting items to prepare for the arrival of new whanau in our city.  Thanks to those who gave money, lifted and shifted, colour matched, purchased and enjoyed preparing homes.
