Jesuit Refugee Service Singapore

Accompany. Serve. Advocate.

A new logo for JRS

We are happy to announce the release of our new logo as we seek to respond in even more effective ways to the unprecedented scale of the global refugee situation. While JRS has updated our logo, we still want to highlight the importance of having figures in the logo that represent the people we serve: refugees on a journey, moving forward in hope and in search of protection. The global reality of forcibly displaced people is why JRS is here at all. The simple lines of the human figures and the arc of protection over them mean that the logo can be easily remembered and reproduced, even hand-drawn, by almost anyone who sees it.

JRS International is a worldwide Catholic organisation founded in 1980.

It was officially registered in 2000 at the Vatican as a foundation. It works with people of all races and religions with a mission to Accompany, Serve and Advocate the causes on behalf of refugees and forcibly displaced people.

JRS is active in 51 countries, particularly in areas of greatest need and where no other humanitarian groups are present.

These include refugees in camps and cities, displaced individuals within their own countries, asylum seekers and those held in detention centres. At the end of 2016, more than 733,400 individuals were direct beneficiaries of JRS projects.

JRS Singapore works closely with JRS Asia Pacific based in Thailand to support the needs of South East Asia.

Our projects include working with local advocacy groups and shelters for victims of human trafficking, raising awareness on the dire refugee situation, fundraising and sending financial and material aid where needed most, and dispatching volunteers on mission trips.

“In the name of all those who persecute you, who have persecuted you, those who have hurt you, above all for the indifference of the world, I ask for forgiveness, forgiveness.”

~ Pope Francis in Bangladesh in 2017
