We are proud to proclaim that for Issue 02: Aftermath, Epoch will be collaborating with the Glasgow-based initiative Refuweegee!
Since their conception in 2015, Refuweegee has endeavoured to extend a warm welcome to all refugees arriving in Scotland, endorsing the aphorism ‘We’re all fae somewhere’. As a result of the overwhelming support of the existing community, they have since become a key service provider in Glasgow and beyond.
Community-built welcome packs, featuring a ‘letter fae a local’ offer a personalised word of hospitality that has helped thousands become acquainted with their new surroundings. Over the past year, the charity has responded to the pandemic by expanding into critical food support. Their text message service, launched in March of 2020 has aided over 14,000 individuals by delivering essentials such as food, toiletries and entertainment.
