About the speaker

Selina is founder and director of Refuweegee, set up in December 2015 to provide a warm welcome to forcibly displaced people arriving in Glasgow. As a result of the amazing response from people in Glasgow and beyond, we have provided over 2000 community-built, personal welcome packs and gained charitable status in September 2016.

Refuweegee’s aim is to enable the existing community in extending the friendly welcome that Glasgow is world renowned for*. They do this through welcome packs, events and volunteer opportunities providing everyone who wishes to get involved with an opportunity to do so; be it through writing a letter, donating essential items, joining us at an event or fundraising.

The organisation works with multiple organisations around Scotland, including partners who distribute welcome packs through to schools and community organisations looking to do something similar in their area. They love hearing from other individuals, organisations, groups and projects and collaborating wherever we can on the very simple objective of making the world a nicer place to live.
