Migrants and Refugees Desk
Migrants and Refugees Desk Coordinator, Mr. Jason Siwat
The CBC Desk for Migrants and Refugees (M&R Desk) was established in 2021 to reflect the concerns of the Bishops and the Catholic faithful for people who are displaced and have no roots. These often include vulnerable groups such as refugees, migrants, internally displaced persons, and victims of human trafficking. The M&R Desk works closely with and for these groups of people in keeping with Pope Francis' call for people to forge solidarity and compassion towards such groups of people who are fleeing persecution and hostility.
The M&R Desk directly connects with the Migrants and Refugees Section of the Dicastery for Integral Human Development of the Holy See in Rome, and the special apostolate and advocacy of Pope Francis on the plight of Migrants, Asylum Seekers, Refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and victims of trafficking/smuggling.
