LOVE WELCOMES is social enterprise initiated by Thistle Farms to provide meaningful compensated work to women living in refugee camps. It moves refugees towards social integration and economic security. LOVE WELCOMES works with 9 women, of the Ritsona Refugee Camp through a weaving social enterprise. The weavers receive a fair salary, while the entire camp gains access to legal assistance and food security from the sales of the homewares. In the coming year, we hope to assist LOVE WELCOMES by growing its UK and US marketplace and create more job opportunities for more women in camps.
