Pope Francis sent a letter to the Refugee Olympic Team   as they prepared to compete in the Olympic Games 2016 taking place in Rio de Janeiro, wishing each of them success in the competition. 
The refugee team is the first of its kind to be created for the Olympics and includes ten members from the countries including South Sudan, Syria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. 
One of the team, Yusra Mardini, is a well-known Christian refugee after she swam for three hours in the sea to reach safety. The 19 year old and her sister then helped to save the lives of 20 refugees by dragging their boat to safety in open water when the motor broke down. She will complete in the women’s 100 m freestyle heats on Wednesday.
Dear brothers and sisters Rami Anis, Yiech Pur Biel, James Nyang Chiengjiek, Yonas Kinde, Anjelina Nada Lohalith, Rose Nathike Lokonyen, Paulo Amotun Lokoro, Yusra Mardini, Popole Misenga and Yolande Bukasa Mabika:
I have learned about your team and read some of your interviews so that I could get closer to your lives and your aspirations. I extend my greetings and wish you success at the Olympic Games in Rio — that your courage and strength find expression through the Olympic Games and serve as a cry for peace and solidarity. Your experience serves as testimony and benefits us all.
I pray for you and ask that you, please, do the same for me. 
God bless you.
In brotherhood,
