Migration is a worldwide phenomenon and it concerns the host community as much as those who leave their home for jobs or a better life. Migrants cannot easily make their voices heard, and are vulnerable to exploitation by some. Too easily, many want them to remain “invisible”. Their needs are an invitation for us to attentively hear, to find sustainable and just solutions, and to protect their dignity.
