Dundee Lord Provost Bob Duncan has reopened the Disaster Relief Fund (Dundee) to ease the plight of refugees from Syria. He said: “The shocking pictures we have all seen of refugees and victims of the war in Syria has touched people’s hearts across the world and in Dundee folk have been in touch to express their shock and frustration at the loss of life and suffering. I was moved to reopen the fund as a way of allowing Dundonians to make a practical contribution to the humanitarian aid that is so badly needed.”
