Every minute 30 people are forced from their homes. This is happening in many countries around the world. Today more people than ever before are forced to flee from one country to another seeking safety or refugee.
This animation encourages children and young people to reflect on journeys made in history and by their own families. It explains that the refugee crisis is global, yet the vast majority of refugees stay close to their home countries. As part of the global Church network, CAFOD is able to reach remote areas to support both refugees and poor communities that are sharing the little they have with refugees.
This animation can be used to raise awareness in advance of the new global agreements on refugees and migration being signed in December 2018.
