“Faces of Migration” photoblog attracts attention in Brazil

Maryknoll Lay Missioner Greg Fischer serves in mission in Brazil with Missão Paz, a center for migrants and immigrants where he works to ensure basic human rights are respected and protected, while also assisting these migrants with basic services, work placement, housing and other needs.

Greg has been working on a special project with Missão Paz, to address the lack of education on migrant issues for the Brazilian public. Greg created a photoblog called “Rostos da Migração” (Faces of Migration) that is bringing attention to the prejudices and obstacles that immigrants face. He has gained local Brazilian media coverage for the project including BuzzFeed Brazil. Most recently, the project and Greg were featured by a Brazilian online publication, Clichetes.com. Read the resulting article here that has been translated to English.
