'The human tragedy is ongoing': European Evangelical Alliance responds to refugee crisis with 'call to action'

The European Evangelical Alliance (EEA) has issued a call to action in response to the ongoing refugee crisis. 

The group urged European leaders to do more to tackle the issue, which it called a "human tragedy".

The EEA noted that the European Commission's 'New Pact on Migration and Asylum' is still far from being agreed, despite being drafted more than three years ago. They also highlighted the horrific statistic that in 2021, more than 1000 people have drowned in their attempt to cross the Mediterranean with the hope of building a new life in Europe. 

As part of its call to action, the EEA is urging governments "to remember humanitarian values (most based on the bible)" and is calling Christians "to pray and to speak up".

The EU commission calls the Migration Pact "a fresh start on migration: building confidence through more effective procedures and striking a new balance between responsibility and solidarity". 

The pact aims to develop more efficient procedures related to migration policy, which they say "will ensure clearer responsibilities, helping to restore trust between Member States while bringing clarity to applicants".
