As a former IDP and refugee, I greatly appreciate the relentless advocacy by @Pontifex on behalf of #refugees and migrants. They are forced to leave their places of origin by a mix of protective and human insecurity. We know this from Afghanistan’s widening humanitarian crisis.
Migrant sisters and brothers, I am here on Lesvos to say I am near you, to look into your eyes full of fear and expectancy, eyes that have seen violence and poverty, eyes streaked by too many tears. Magration is a humanitarian crisis that concerns everyone. #ApostolicJourney
