Inaugural Sanctuary Awards – 15 July 2019

Welsh Refugee Council organised the inaugural Nation of Sanctuary Gala Awards in conjunction with the Welsh Refugee Coalition.

The awards were hosted by BBC presenter Jason Mohamed – helped by our very own Hazar!

The event celebrated the contributions and achievements of sanctuary seekers with nominees from across Wales including Aberystwyth, Swansea, Wrexham, Newport and Abergavenny.

8 awards were presented including woman of the year and leader of the future.

We hope this will be the first of many!
