Building the Future with Migrants and Refugees

By Migrants and Refugees section (Holy See)

“The contribution of migrants and refugees is fundamental to the social and economic growth of our societies. It is a potential that is ready to be realised, if only we give it a chance.
In your opinion, how can we foster the development of this potential?” Pope Francis

In addition to the Holy Father’s, there is also Lucy’s testimony, an immigrant to Kenya who with her work and skills is contributing to the development of the community and the economy of the country.

Today, on the anniversary of his visit to Lampedusa, we are all invited to respond to Pope Francis’ question! Send us your own contribution by emailing a short video or photo to The best answers will be part of the campaign.
