    Let us be part of this bold action – for the well-being of all, especially women and children

    “Our world, caught up in wars, violence, and various forms of injustice, is witnessing an unprecedented movement of peoples…
    How we deal with them is a test of our humanity,
    our respect for human dignity, and above all
    our solidarity with our brothers and sisters in need.” –
