Anglican Refugee and Migrant Network seeks diocesan insight

From ENS-

The coordinator of the Anglican Communion’s newest international network, the Anglican Refugee and Migrant Network (ARMN), is looking to connect with dioceses around the world.
A letter sent to nearly 800 diocesan bishops by the Rev. Terrie Robinson, in her role as Anglican Communion’s Networks’ Coordinator, introduced ARMN’s new coordinator, the Rev. Catherine Graham, and asked them to share with her insights and information from their dioceses about issues of refugees or migration.

“Across the Anglican Communion, church communities are supporting migrants, internally displaced people and refugees in many different ways,” wrote Robinson. “To help Catherine understand how best to facilitate networking among Anglicans who are involved in such mission and ministry, and to enhance international awareness and support of local initiatives, we would like to ask for your assistance.

“Catherine would be very grateful to receive as much information as you are able to offer in respect of migrants, internally displaced people and refugees in your diocese or area. This might include a description of the local situation with any available statistics, together with an account of particular challenges faced locally by children, women and men who are now living away from their country or place of origin – and also by host communities.
