Caritas groups discuss Arab immigration into Europe

Catholic World News - May 15, 2012

A conference of Caritas relief organizations from the Mediterranean region meets in Cagliari, Italy this week to discuss the problems facing immigrants from the Middle East and northern Africa.

Member-agencies of Caritas, the umbrella group for Catholic relief organizations, will discuss the steady flow of immigrants into Europe and the difficulties that agencies face in caring for them. Participants will include relief workers from many of the countries that immigrants are leaving (Libya, Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon, Turkey, and Tunisia) as well as the European countries (Italy, France, Germany, Spain) where they are meeting with heightened hostility at a time of overall economic crisis.
