How to Help Refugees from Afghanistan
“I would like to ask you all to see a ray of hope as well as in the eyes and hearts of refugees and of those who have been forcibly displaced. A hope that is expressed in expectations for the future, in the desire for friendship, in the wish to participate in the host society also through learning the language, access to employment, and the education of children.” – Pope Francis
