Bel Yournech Project on Ceuta's border

0406-1

CEUTA, Spain.
The Social Area of the Teresian Association of Spain supports Bel Yournech Project, a humanitarian emergency response to the harsh reality faced by many African immigrants (women, children, the sick ..) waiting near the border of Ceuta for a possibility to enter Spain.

 “Our encounter with the Jesus of the Gospels calls us out of ourselves to open up spaces of trust and freedom, spaces in which anyone, men and women, young and old, can feel welcomed and be sure of love and understanding. They are welcome spaces where, like Jesus, nobody feels trapped in their past. On the contrary, they are open to a future that will come in which compassion and mercy, tenderness and trust, manifest the power of the dignity of every person, every culture and every human experience.”

Maite Uribe, Trust, strength in fragility

The living conditions of many African immigrants who wait on Ceuta’s border are infrahuman. They have no access to basic resources: water, food, warm clothing, or health care. They move around within the forest and are often dispersed violently.

Every week a group of volunteers, including the Bishop of the diocese, Santiago Agrelo, provide water, food, warm clothing and blankets. They also provide sanitary help and cure some of their injuries.

This project is funded entirely by donations, so the Social Area of the Teresian Association wants to support it. If you want to collaborate, send your contribution to:
