The island of Malta has in recent years come under scrutiny with regard to its position as a point of entry into Europe for asylum seekers and refugees attempting to flee Africa via the Mediterranean.

Grant Tungay SJ, who spent the summer working there with the Jesuit Refugee Service, describes the plight of those who arrive in Malta under such circumstances, and the legal and political issues surrounding their situation.

How can JRS offer help and companionship to those who seek refuge in Malta?  To read his article on Thinking Faith,  see:
