Jesuit Refugee Service - Grands Lacs
Fr. Tony Calleja SJ, JRS Grands Lacs Director, talks about Jesuit Refugee Service's outreach to refugees and internally displaced people in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. Fr Calleja says people come to JRS with "deeper human needs" that transcend material needs. The mission of Jesuit Refugee Service is to accompany, serve and defend the rights of refugees and internally displaced people, a vulnerable and often forgotten people. JRS witnesses to the reality that God is present in human history, even in the most tragic experiences of persons driven from their homes by conflict, natural disaster, economic injustice, or violation of other human rights.
