Frequently words are not enough to explain the dramatic situations in which forcibly displaced persons live. This section tries to bring you closer to the lives of refugees through with the presentation of audiovisual materials.

Videos on JRS accompaniment

The cornerstone of the Jesuit Refugee Service mission is to offer holistic human services to forcibly displaced persons. All the subsidies in the world will never be able to replace the warmth of assistance rendered by one individual human being to another. JRS recognises the human dignity in refugees through its accompaniment. It is through providing accompaniment to refugees that JRS staff understand how best to serve and advocate on their behalf.
