Day of Prayer for Migrants & Refugees
A migrant is one who moves from one location to another in search of a better way of living. It’s a free choice but it can present big challenges.
A refugee is a person who is forced to flee from home because of war, violence, persecution or famine. It may take years to re-build their lives.
