Flowers Campaign for International Migrants Day

The Flowers Campaign aims to pay homage to all the migrants that have died on the borders and in the seas, oceans and deserts of the world.  On this occasion, the West African Observatory on Migrations invites all citizens that support solidarity and justice to join us in paying homage to the migrants that have perished by throwing a flower into a stream, lagoon, river, sea or ocean.  To also honour the migrants that live near our homes, we invite you to participate by offering them a flower or the drawing of a flower as a token of your respect and solidarity.
