Virtual Event: Hope in Displacement
Hope in displacement – Building a world where no one is forgotten
Virtual event of the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) to mark the beginning of the Advent season.
There are many displacement situations that are overlooked and forgotten. These crises affect people that have lives and stories like everyone else. We must put forgotten displaced people at the center.
