Caritas International assists vulnerable refugees.

About

Caritas International assists vulnerable refugees: people with medical or psychosocial problems, single mothers or unaccompanied children. The Integration cell also assists refugees who arrived in Belgium as part of the resettlement programme. These refugees are given the chance – after having lived in refugee camps – to establish a new life in Belgium thanks to the help of our coaches. The coaches ensure that their basic needs are met and, if necessary, they are sent to more specific support services.
