Our nominated charity for this year is Oasis Cardiff.
About Oasis Cardiff
Oasis Cardiff is an non profit charity that aims to help Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Cardiff.
Our main aim and vision is to help Refugees and Asylum Seekers integrate within their local community.
Not only do we encourage integration within our own community and culture but we are also keen to learn and be inspired by the cultures and traditions we are exposed to daily by our wonderful clients at Oasis.
We have roughly 100 – 150 visitors daily, this includes people from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mali and Congo among many other countries. Some have just arrived in Cardiff where as other have been here for a few years and visit Oasis to socialise with the many friends they have made here.
During the week our centre is open to Refugees and Asylum Seekers, we run various women only sessions and groups, art classes, English language classes, sports sessions, daily advisory sessions, advocacy forums, relaxation sessions and the list goes on, oh and we provide free lunch every week day and it’s always delicious!
Outside of our centre we aim to organise regular cultural and sport trips around Wales from museum and art gallery visits to sport team activities and mountain peak challenges.
