What we are experiencing recently is a tragedy that is taking place before our eyes. Hundreds of thousands of men, women, children, elderly, are escaping from the clutches of a war that seems to be never-ending.
They are our next door neighbors, the Middle East, knocking incessantly at our European doors to ask to be granted the right of security, a safe shelter from the threat of death. Many of them have left precipitately, leaving their belongings, and very often their beloved ones whom cannot travel.
The journey of hope that these migrants have taken has been for many a real misery. They have faced a long journey crossing different countries, deserts, seas, with the anxiety of not succeeding. For many of them it has been so, they drowned in a strip of sea that separated them from the apparent salvation. Among them many children, too many!
Although the political and institutional entities are at work to stop this tragedy, every day we read the record of migratory flows that are pouring on European territories, stained by the blood of those who didn’t make it. They are victims of a weakness caused by those who have abused of their desperate need of salvation.
With this scenario, the seventh day Adventist church is doing its best to help in this emergency supporting with the strengths available. Hereafter we present a number of projects that show the strategy implemented by ADRA, Adventist Development and Relief Agency.
