I am presently with a group of 17 other Christian leaders for four days of meetings here in Bangkok.
We are all connected through the Refugee Highway Partnership (RHP), a global network of Christians serving refugees that I helped launch back in 2001.
The RHP has grown significantly over the years and it is high time that we updated some of the structure and systems that keep us all connected.
With networks well established in Europe, North America, Brazil and Turkey – and emerging networks in East Africa, Oceana, South Asia and Central America, the RHP plays an important role in raising awareness of refugee realities and the unique role the church can play in helping people survive and recover from forced displacement.
