From @refugees “Talal and his family want to really take on everything here in the UK - language, and commitment and be part of society, Talal is a carpenter and wants to work.” Walking Dead actor @DavidMorrissey64 is reunited in London with a Syrian refugee family he met in Lebanon. After being identified as vulnerable, Talal’s family were resettled to the UK. David wanted to see how their new life was going, Talal told him: “We expected it to be more challenging than it is but everything is good. I want to learn the language and contribute something that I can do.” Lebanon is hosting more than 1 million Syrians and under huge strain - they and other hosts need support from countries like the UK to help resettle some of the most vulnerable refugees. Resettlement countries like the UK make the decision on who comes - and they carry out their own security checks before the refugees arrive. The UK has been generous in agreeing to resettle 20,000 Syrian refugees by 2020 and a new report from UNHCR today finds that refugees are being made to feel welcome, and integrating well.
