True Celebrates International Migrants Day
Migrants play a vital role in global economy and immigrants bring growth and innovation in both the countries they come from, and in those they move to. International Migrants Day is an occasion to celebrate and recognise the struggles of many people around the world, who have left their countries in search of a bright future.
On 18 December 2021, we acknowledge the rights, efforts, and contributions of migrants worldwide. At True, we have a number of people from migrant background (well that’s many of us really!) and we wanted to showcase a couple.
