Urgent action after more tragedy in Mediterranean

When we are faced with the human drama experienced by migrants trying to escape conflict, exploitation, poverty, vulnerability and injustice, we cannot remain indifferent. As a member of the Caritas Internationalis network, we join our voice to their urgent call for:

  • open, legal, and safe migration channels to ensure that people migrate without risking their lives, and sharing the reception and protection of migrants across Europe;
  • reinvigorating search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean;
  • increasing investment in the development of people in their home countries so migration is an option rather than a necessity.
