Videos about the JRS mission of Accompaniment

Accompaniment is an essential element of the mission and methodology of Jesuit Refugee Service Asia Pacfic. To accompany means to be a companion. To accompany is a practical and effective action. Not infrequently it is precisely the way in which protection is given. It is a way to ‘internationalize’ a situation. The presence of an international team can sometimes prevent an attack on refugees. Moreover, presence can be a sign. That a free person chooses willingly and faithfully to accompany those who are not free, who had no choice about being there, is itself a sign, a way of eliciting hope.
