Yusra Mardini, a young refugee, finds safety in her new home

You Are Welcome is all about deconstructing stereotypes and breaking down the barriers that separate refugees and immigrants from their new local communities and from carrying on with their lives.

Being a refugee isn’t a choice and its a label that is often the first and only thing people notice when they meet a refugee. Yusra Mardini’s inspirational story is a reminder that anybody, no matter their background, can achieve incredible things if they are determined enough.
