The Pope dedicates message to children on the upcoming World Day of Migrants & Refugees

2009-11-27

The World Day of Migrants and Refugees will be held on January 17th and will focus on the youngest immigrants and refugees. Benedict XVI lamented that when children have no real role models or family support, they suffer from distress and severe disorders.

That’s why, the Pope has called for special attention to both children born in foreign countries as those living in their native countries but who do not meet their parents until years later. The Pope says these children are part of two cultures and they people need to be help them integrate to society.

In fact, Benedict XVI cited the Convention on the Rights of the Child and recalls that the rights of minors should be protected to prevent them being abandoned and exploited.

Benedict XVI thanked the work of many individuals and institutions working for children and called on all Christians to become more aware of the situation of child migrants and refugees.
