One thought

  1. The fate of all migrants fleeing from their countries for various reasons has to be decided by countries who can help the children women and the rest and is mankinds duty to rescue them. The article above is very much enlightening and i pray may all North American and Europe countries will do their best in accommodating them and giving them a life of hope. The AKDN has always championed poverty and will definitely help with migrants too with help from other countries where to place them.
