FORTY-THREE towns and villages in Malaga Province sent representatives to a meeting last week with the Red Cross and other charities to discuss preparations to take in Syrian refugees when they arrive.

Councils are stepping forward to offer lodgings, which, the charities explained at the meeting, must have capacity for at least 25 people, kitchens and bathrooms.

Along with accommodation, refugees will receive psychological, social and legal support, Spanish lessons and information on the area, it has been agreed.


Council members reported that people are showing a lot of interest in volunteering to help tend to the refugees when they arrive, and the charities will be providing training.
