On December 18 - International Migrants Day - Deusto University launched the photo exhibition "Stand by. Syrian refugee families in no man's land" by the photojournalist Iván Benítez, and promoted by the Jesuit NGO ALBOAN.

JRS offers them legal advice, psychological and social support, and supports several schools where the children can continue their studies, while waiting for a final destination in the UE.

The exhibition will be open in Deusto until January 31.

Fr Antonio España, Provincial of Spain, participated at the exhibition opening so as Fr José Ignacio García (JRS Europe director), Fr Guibert (Rector of the University of Deusto) and Mrs. Mar Magallón (Alboan director). The actor Cruz Noguera performed the suffering of migration with the work "Passport", and two collaborators of the Ignacio Ellacuría Social Foundation read a manifesto for the rights of migrants and refugees.
