    The welcome message is a beautiful way to help newcomers with their fears of a new place. When one is a refugee and is looking for a safe space, away from war, it is a big solace to get a warm welcome from your own country-men and the native people.The small challenges like time management, riding a bus and not getting lost in a new place seem very difficult to cross, but with little help from friends all this becomes smooth. It is a very wise project which needs to be widely emulated.
