Castilla y León's provincial capitals join cities welcoming war refugees
04 September 2015 @ 19:06

MORE towns and cities in Spain have agreed to take in refugees fleeing war zones in the Middle East, with all nine provincial capitals in the centre-northern region of Castilla y León coming forward.

Ávila, Zamora, Valladolid, Salamanca, Soria, Segovia, León, Burgos and Palencia have all announced their willingness to help and to put aside extra funds to help any Syrians sent to their cities.

Castilla y León regional government has agreed to provide funding and to take in those who have arrived in Europe trying to escape the war and the bloodthirsty régime of DAESH (ISIS).

And a Facebook group has been set up calling for volunteers in and around the province of Alicante, eastern Spain, to offer rooms in their homes to Syrians.

They can be found by searching for Red Alicantina de Familias de Acogida de Refugiados.

Spain's central government has agreed to form part of the European refugee distribution programme, but like most member States, has not been able to agree on how many the country will accept.
