"It is so wonderful to see the efforts that local people have gone to make people feel welcome and make them feel part of the community."
Glowing praise from Home Office minister Joan Ryan. This is the side of Motherwell... where I live... that rarely gets the attention it deserves. Makes me proud to say I'm fae the 'Well!

We (as in Athabasca, the town I live in) are currently beginning the process of resettling a family of 7 from the Congo. It should take the better part of 2-3 years to work everything out, but we're getting ready!
