This year as part of our Christmas appeal, we tell three stories of family breakup and heartache that ended in reunion. Majid, Rukhsana and John tell how Glasgow City Mission helped give them hope during trying times.
Majid moved here to escape persecution in Iran, while his wife and daughter stayed behind.
Rukhsana’s family migrated from Pakistan because of a violent incident. Her husband was able to leave first, so Rukhsana and her children spent some time moving around Pakistan before they could join him in Glasgow.
John left his home in Glasgow because of a family breakup and was sleeping in his car.
