Let me begin by thanking you for coming together in this deeply meaningful way – and on such a timely initiative.
I firmly believe in the power of faith leaders to shape our world for good.
As High Commissioner for Refugees, I made a special effort to reach out to faith leaders.
I did so out of personal conviction. But I also did so for very practical reasons.
After all, to the vast majority of people uprooted from their homes, faith is an anchor in a stormy sea of fear, loss, separation and destitution.
