Certain migrants or individuals who previously requested asylum envision returning to their country of origin. This may happen after a few years in exile or after a long stay in Belgium. Caritas International would like to assist them in preparing for their departure as well as during their reintegration back into the society of their country of origin.
THE VOLUNTARY ASPECT OF RETURN IS FUNDAMENTAL.
