Carolina Castillo works at Jesuit Migrant Service in Valencia, Spain
Why do you think the work of JRS is relevant today?
In my opinion, it is fundamental and indispensable that there are organizations that welcome and accompany people who migrate and facilitate their adaptation in the host society where they arrive. As this process is generally very shocking and stressful at a psychological, family , economic and social level for those who experience it, it puts human integrity and dignity at risk, calling on those who can help to help.
How does your work contribute to SJM Valencia?
I believe that my work contributes to the dignity of people who have migrated to Valencia for different reasons.
What does SJM Valencia mean to you?
For me, SJM is synonymous with three things: solidarity, trust and commitment.
