Caritas appeal for migrant, refugee children

March 16, 2017

Caritas, the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies, has called for “proper protection” for the “millions of children who now make up an astonishing half of the world’s total refugees.”

“Many children have been made to travel alone as refugees or economic migrants,” says Maria Amparo Alonso Escobar, Head of the Caritas Delegation at UN offices in Geneva. “They face a great risk from human traffickers and sexual predators.”
