Latin America is living through the biggest exodus in its history, with almost 8 million people on a migration journey. Though many stay within the Latin American region they often face discrimination, racism and closed borders.

This case study shares how Tearfund has innovated to develop a free digital application (app) as part of a range of measures that enable the church to respond to migrants in a spirit of acceptance, inclusion, welcome and love.
