The increasing coordination of immediate response actions is the foundation for the design of a comprehensive proposal integrating all humanitarian response activities around the four verbs of Pope Francis that summarize our response: welcome, protect, advocate for and integrate refugees.
The global program, titled “One Proposal,” encompasses the four dimensions above:
(a) Reception (“welcome”), providing temporary shelter, food and other essentials, transportation, and operation of call centers;
(b) Protection, providing safe shelter, legal assistance, psychosocial support, education, and health;
(c) Advocacy, addressing education and livelihood needs of refugees;
(d) Integration, helping reconciliation and awareness-raising through educational, communication, advocacy, and accompaniment activities.
