At the same
time, in this encounter, we welcome the great gift of discovering - or at least
intuiting - the human values migrants bring with them, values which no one can
rob them of, and which have so much to offer Western society: hope, creativity,
resilience, solidarity, a sense of community... as well as, quite often, a
profound trust in God. They feel they are in his hands.
resources, fruit of the generosity of our benefactors and supporters, are,
however, very limited given the gravity of the situation. In addition, we are
aware of the need to invest our efforts into preventative action, in order to
try and break the cycle of this humanitarian disaster. This is why, since last
year, some members of the Delegation have been running a pilot project to raise
awareness in migrants’ countries of origin, specifically in Guinea-Conakry. We
are currently evaluating the possibility of a similar intervention in Senegal.
