Cooperate for refugees

· Joint declaration of the WCC, UNICEF, UNFPA and UNHCR ·

Better coordination in order to respond effectively to the growing number of migrants coming to Europe is being asked of participants in a conference on the emergency migrant crisis which was held in recent days in Geneva at the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the United Nations.

“Implementing, strengthening and improving the common EU asylum system is urgently needed”, reads the message which was written by the WCC, UNICEF, UNFPA and UNHCR. “Strengthened coordination in the European response is required to meet the needs of refugees and migrants, including protection against sexual and gender-based violence, education for children and adolescents, and the specific health, nutrition and protection needs of children, adolescents and women, the elderly and people with disabilities. It is essential to uphold principles of international law in the context of the crisis”
