The World Humanitarian Summit promoted by the United Nations started today in Istanbul, with the presence of heads of state and government, representatives of the religious world and civil society. So many major humanitarian issues on the agenda: the consequences of wars, migrations, universal access to health care, climate change.
The Community of Sant'Egidio presented its experience of humanitarian corridors for refugees and political and religious dialogue for the resolution of conflicts. "It is a very important meeting - said Marco Impagliazzo - which reveals a strong will at the international level not to abandon any person, especially those suffering humanitarian crises. The role of civil society in many areas appears as essential in many areas to ensure support and help to those in need. Sant'Egidio also hopes that humanitarian aid takes into account the issue of integration, main road to overcome any kind of exclusion and marginalization".
