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.

Invidual 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.
