Global migration crisis: A time for solidarity

Blog: Global migration crisis: A time for solidarity

We believe this is a time for solidarity with migrants. It is right to say that we must bring peace and security to the countries which are the primary sources for migration, but to use that as an excuse to close your doors is cowardice.
