Say Croeso! Make people of all origins feel welcome this Christmas

Croeso Christmas Wales migration

It’s not right that people from other countries who’ve made Wales their home are excluded and abused.

Wales was built on a melting pot of cultures, and in today’s society people should be free from hate.

We’re working hard to ensure people of all origins are welcome in Wales. We’re finding common ground and bringing people together.

This Christmas, please say ‘croeso’ with a donation to this vital work.

Why not donate in lieu of a Christmas gift for someone? Just email us with the message you want to appear and the address you’d like your gift certificate sent to after you’ve made your donation.

Filip’s story

Filip* and his wife moved to Wales over a decade ago. Originally from Poland, their work in education and IT led them to travel and live in many different parts of the world, but they fell in love with Wales after visiting the Gower and Brecon Beacons.

They have since had two children and have fully embraced Welsh culture the whole family is learning to speak Welsh and they enjoy attending the Eisteddfod. However, since the referendum in 2016, Filip says:

I have gone from feeling welcomed here to feeling I have permission to stay. But Wales is the only home my children know.

Estynnwch eich Croeso! Gwnewch i bobl o bobman deimlo bod croeso iddyn nhw’r Nadolig hwn

Nid yw’n iawn bod pobl o wledydd eraill sydd wedi gwneud eu cartref yng Nghymru yn cael eu heithrio a’u cam-drin. Mae Cymru’n seiliedig ar gymysgedd o ddiwylliannau ac, yn gymdeithas sydd ohoni heddiw, dylai pobl fod yn rhydd o bob atgasedd.

Rydyn ni’n gweithio’n galed i sicrhau bod croeso yng Nghymru i bawb o bob man.  Rydyn ni’n chwilio am yr hyn sydd ganddon ni gyd yn gyffredin ac yn dod â phobl ynghyd.

Y Nadolig hwn, dangoswch eich ‘croeso’ drwy gyfrannu at y gwaith hanfodol hwn.
