The meal, which will take place at the Caritas soup kitchen at Rome’s Termini Station, will be a moment for migrants and refugees to share their migration stories and experiencesThe Rome meal is part of Caritas’s Share the Journey campaign’s “Global Week of Action” 17-24 June. During that week, the 165 member Catholic confederation will promote meals and activities with migrants and refugees across the globe to mark World Refugee Day.

Alessandro Gisotti, a journalist from Vatican News, will present the event. Pope Francis launched the Share the Journey campaign in September 2017, emphasising how migration is a reciprocal journey made both by migrants and communities.“Hope is the force that drives us “to share the journey”, because the journey is made jointly: by those who come to our land, and by us who go towards their heart, to understand them, to understand their culture, their language.” Read more.Share the Journey is part of a global effort to build stronger relationships between migrants, refugees and with the communities which they want to leave, where they travel through, where they make their home.
