Europe and refugees – a tragic story of political failure. That sounds like a film title, but it is sad reality. While governments watch thousands of people drown in the Mediterranean Sea, private organizations rescue human lives with great commitment. But instead of thanking for this help, organizations are blamed to make the refugee route more attractive or they are even prosecuted on ground of the accusation they would support people- smugglers.
At the YoungCaritas in Europe-Day, we want to draw attention to this situation and give a political sign.
On 6th October 2017, we like to thank those who commit themselves to human lives by activities and via social media.
Take the chance to network with other like-minded Europeans and put down a marker for more solidarity!
Join us #savinghumanity!
