RECEPTION IS A RIGHT

Asylum seekers :

About

The January 12, 2007 “reception law” provides a legal framework for reception so that applicants for international protection can obtain protection through the duration of their asylum process. Fedasil, the Federal Agency for Reception of Asylum Seekers (or applicants for international protection), designates housing accommodations based upon the individual’s level of vulnerability. Caritas specializes in the reception of applicants for international protection who are deemed “vulnerable”: single women with or without children, as well as any those in need of medical assistance. They live in adapted individual housing and are supported by our team. Caritas also manages two collective reception centers for families and individuals.
