Support for Migrants    (West Africa)

Sister Joséphine had the pleasure of attending the annual meeting of the Maghreb Sahel network from 21 to 24 April in Tunis (Tunisia). It was a wonderful opportunity for members from 8 countries – Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, South Africa, Cameroon, Tunisia and France – to come together and discuss some important topics.

The meeting was a chance for everyone to share their thoughts on two key themes:

1. Supporting migrant women and the role of women in our organisations

2. What is good practice in the event of the death of a migrant?

It was a truly enriching experience, and we made some great commitments and suggestions for advocacy.

How can we support the families of missing migrants?

– How can we act locally in the face of rising xenophobia?

The meeting was a wonderful opportunity for sharing, and we made a number of commitments and suggestions for advocacy.
