I | want to be happy again

THE CAMPAIGN

“Today, far from home, I embrace another culture. I live, move, eat, drink: Everything is different. Tomorrow you can embrace another culture, by your own decision or lack of choice. Then you will live, move, eat, drink: Everything will be different. We are all foreigners. Today I, yesterday another, tomorrow you, maybe. We are citizens of this world”,

Sandra Santos, a Brazilian who lives in Germany.

Migration is a universal human right! Migration concerns the spatial mobility of people, that is, changing houses, cities, regions, states or countries. This process has been going on since the beginning of human history. We all have in our families migratory realities, displacements. Some migrate by choice, others are forced to migrate.
Based on this reflection, at the request and with the support of Cáritas Brasileira, the Signis Brasil Jovem group created the #EuMigrante campaign to show the reality, the drama experienced by Venezuelan migrants who arrive in Brazil. The campaign also wants to point out ways to help them in the reception process, or as Pope Francis asks us to “ welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants and refugees”.
 
The initiative is part of the Pana Program , which is an initiative developed by Cáritas Brasileira and Cáritas Switzerland, with support from the United States Department of State, and aims to contribute to humanitarian assistance and the integration of migrants and refugees, especially Venezuelans. , who are in a situation of social vulnerability and who seek to rebuild life in Brazil. The project aims, over the course of a year, to benefit more than 3,500 people, at least 1,224 of whom are Venezuelan migrants, from the integration in seven capitals of Brazil:Boa Vista (RR), Brasília (DF), Curitiba (PR), Florianópolis (SC), Porto Velho (RO), Recife (PE) and São Paulo (SP) , and has local partners that contribute to the integration of migrants .
