The French couple giving refugees a home

Charities in France have seen a rise in people wanting to give homes to refugees.

French couple Jacques and Martine Mercier have been welcoming refugees into their home in Versailles, just outside Paris, for several years.

They say that while living with refugees is incredibly rewarding, it's also a responsibility, requiring patience and understanding.
