Prayer for migrants

1 Luglio 2022

On June 29th, 20 bodies were found in the Libyan desert. The bodies were discovered by a truck driver who was traveling through the desert. According to rescuers, it is presumed that the group died of thirst. Two of the bodies are presumed to be Libyans, while the other bodies were believed to be migrants from Chad who were crossing into Libya. The country has been the dominant transit point for people fleeing war and poverty in Africa and parts of the Middle East, making Libya a dangerous crossroad.
