Rome, July 8 - By speaking in support of immigrants
and acknowledging the great dangers and suffering many face,
Pope Francis has raised the profile of a significant issue, the
head of UNICEF in Italy said Monday.
"The visit of Pope Francis today to Lampedusa has given
voice at the global level" to the crisis in immigration today,
said Andrea Iacomini.
He spoke after the pope visited Lampedusa, a southern
Italian island to which migrants flock in boats, often risking
their lives, as steppingstone from the north African coast to
Italy and Europe.
UNICEF has sounded an alarm on the waves of people forced
by war and economic hardship to flee their homes, and the pope
has repeated that message forcefully, Iacomini added in a
statement.
"The message of the holy father has pierced the veil of
hypocrisy".
