REFUGEE SUPPORT

REFUGEE SUPPORT

COMMUNITY BASED PROTECTION

We are conducing community based protection activities in 4 community centres we call Support to Life Houses. Our program is shaped with an eye for refugee and host communities’ participation and thanks to this participatory framework, we are hoping to reach out to more and more people. We organize activities focusing on intercultural exchange and aim to reinforce community member capacities. In order to mitigate the effects of past traumas and minimize impediments to social cohesion, we deliver mental health and psycho-social support services.

INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION

We assist refugees living outside the camps who have difficulty accessing their basic needs and rights with our individual protection teams in cooperation with local authorities and Social Solidarity Associations. When individuals have difficulty navigating bureaucratic processes such as birth registrations, residence permits, marriages or school enrolments, or when they have trouble accessing health services, we refer them to relevant institutions. We also provide information and consultancy services.

With our livelihoods activities, we aim to enable disaster-affected individuals to lead independent lives without being dependent on external support. We seek to facilitate our beneficiaries who seek to gain new skills for better employment opportunities, or who wish to gain entrepreneurial skills to start their own businesses.

We provide financial contributions that help disaster affected individuals and communities cover their basic needs through the use of e-cards. With this method, we aim to give community members the freedom to choose while contributing to local economies and social cohesion.

“We got here from far away, all the way from Dara, and spent three long winters. The only thing we had to protect us from the cold were our blankets. But thanks to the winterization aid, my kids can wear jumpers and coats this winter. I bought winter clothes for myself, my wife and my kids with the e-cards they gave us.”

SUPPORT TO LIFE WITH E-CARDS
