Alan Kurdi’s father gives the Pope a picture with the image of the child

by time news

Vatican City, 7 March (

A particularly touching and painful moment in Iraq when the Pope met the father of little Alan Kurdi, who was shipwrecked with his brother and mother on the Turkish coast in September 2015 while he was trying to reach Europe with his family. The image of the little one, carried ashore by the current of the sea, has gone around the world, raising global indignation. The harrowing image, reproduced in a painting warning for the many tragedies of migrants at sea, was donated by Alan’s father to the Pope, as seen in the image taken during the poignant meeting at the end of the mass in Erbil.
