ITALY Migration: the face of children

13 January 2017 - "The Pope has given this World Day for Migrants and Refugees a key to important reflection that passes through migrant children. We must look at them in order to truly understand the phenomenon of migration today". This was stated in a note sent to Agenzia Fides, by Sr. Neusa de Fátima Mariano, Superior General of the Scalabrinian religious congregation that since its foundation provides assistance to migrants worldwide.

The Holy Father’s theme for the 2017 World Day is “Child Migrants, the Vulnerable and the Voiceless”. "Today those children are uprooted from their homes - says Sister Neusa -. At an age when everything is a dream they are forced to flee, to leave their families (if they still have one). Everything leads us to really understand what is the measure of an endless tragedy".

"Every year, in every continent, there are thousands of faces of children that we meet – she continues -. They are the face of migration: they have the eyes of those who have seen many, too many tragedies and the smile of those who nevertheless continue to hope. They have no voice and quietly continue their escape to a world that is not theirs". (SL) (Agenzia Fides 13/01/2017)
