Archbishop Joan Enric Vives i Sicilia of Urgell, and ex officio Co-Prince of Andorra made the appeal after a visit to Syrian refugees in Jordan. He is part of a delegation of bishops from Europe and North America on pilgrimage in the Holy Land in an effort to express solidarity and bring support to Christian communities across Israel, Jordan and the Palestinian territories.
A visit organised by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales with a mandate from the Holy See.
Bishop Vives recounts that at a meeting with a member of the Royal Family of Jordan he discovered that they have counted 250.000 people coming into the country from Syria since May, which means with summed with other refugees there are some 600,000 refugees.
