Headline: EUROPE/ITALY – Scalabrinian Missionaries: unprecedented numbers of forced displacements, and there are still no answers
Rome – Today there are 70.8 million people in the world forced to flee, victims of conflicts, persecutions, violence or natural disasters. Of these 25.9 million are recognized refugees. Numbers whose complexity testify that “forced displacements have reached an unprecedented level and the answers are still not enough to offer solutions to people so that they can rebuild their lives”. This is what Sister Neusa de Fatima Mariano, Superior General of the Missionary Sisters of San Carlo Borromeo/Scalabrinians, said in a message sent to Fides on the occasion of the International Refugee Day on 20 June.
