Spain to welcome refugees
September 4 , 2015
Cities across Spain have said they want to help form a network of places where residents can sign up to welcome some of the thousands of refugees desperately seeking safety in Europe, the media reported.
Barcelona’s initiative to join cities together in a network giving shelter to refugees has been met with an outpouring of support from local governments across Spain, with at least a dozen city councils saying they want to take part.
After Spain’s capital city, Madrid, announced earlier this week that it would join Barcelona, Valencia, Pamplona, Córdoba, various cities on Mallorca, and many others have said they will follow suit. (Source: IANS)
