Having donated generously to refugees located abroad, the people of Cumbernauld will today welcome seven vulnerable Syrian families who have been forced to flee their homes as a result of the violence and horror of the war in Syria.

This is a wonderful humanitarian gesture and it’s fantastic that Cumbernauld is playing its part in the worst humanitarian crisis of our time by offering protection to these families.

Everyone who has worked so hard to make this happen deserves enormous credit and I know that Cumbernauld residents are ready to provide the new arrivals with a warm welcome and the support they need to help rebuild their lives.
