Headline: EUROPE/ITALY – Minors: 3 immigrants out of 5 in Africa and Asia
Rome – “Africa and Asia welcome three out of five immigrant children. Worldwide 30% of migrants are under 18 years old. The number of children who leave their families to set out on the paths of migration is high”. This is underlined by Sister Neusa de Fatima Mariano, Superior General of the Scalabrinian Missionary Sisters, a Congregation that has been involved in the assistance to migrants since its foundation. Sister Neusa recalls this reality on the anniversary of the death of the Servant of God Father Giuseppe Marchetti, co-founder of the Congregation.
