Faith based organisations unite as UN Compacts for migrants and refugees approach implementation
Caritas has launched a Global Week of Action for migrants and refugees as Pope Francis appeals for those forced from their homes.
Caritas organisations in all regions are planning shared meals and events. Caritas Internationalis along with Caritas Rome and Italy will hold a meal with migrants and refugees at their Termini Station soup kitchen on Tuesday 19th June.
Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim and Christian leaders will be calling on countries to ensure safe and legal pathways for migrants and refugees as well as inclusive societies and the right to remain at home.
Caritas joins Pope Francis’ call for individuals, communities and world leaders “to welcome, protect, promote and integrate” migrants and refugees at every stage of their journey.
“Hope is what drives the hearts of those who depart,” said Pope Francis on 27 September as he opened the Caritas ‘Share the Journey’ migration campaign.
