Spain – First anniversary of Campaign for Hospitality

Following the steps of the Jesuits in Latin America, in January 2016, Jesuit social apostolate organisations in Spain launched the ‘Hospitality campaign’ covering four areas of action: welcoming, international cooperation, social awareness and advocacy. It aims at protecting the rights and covering the needs of migrants and refugees, where the official system’s services prove insufficient.
