JRS is a ministry of theSociety of Jesus under the direct responsibility of the Superior General, Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal SJ. JRS is committed to working for the wellbeing and hope of refugees.

Our projects may require practical planning, political negotiations, and financial sustainability, but our mission always remains rooted in a love for refugees that is profoundly bound to God’s unfailing love for us. Our service to refugees is an expression of our desire to accompany faithfully those who experience so much rejection and absence in their lives.
