Type of practice:
The aim of the initiative is to identify and enhance the capacity of vulnerable migrants in Morocco and Africa as a continent. This includes migrants of all backgrounds, particularly refugees, women, and children. The initiative involves establishing temporary housing structures to provide accommodation for migrants in vulnerable situations who have no place to stay. This housing assistance also encompasses other humanitarian support, such as food and medical aid for vulnerable migrants. The resources implemented facilitate the organization's efforts to locate missing or unidentified migrants who are often in precarious circumstances. A concrete example of this is the actions taken by the organization following the tragedy on June 24th in Nador Morocco, where they assisted in searching for missing migrants and provided urgent medical care to migrants who were injured during the incident. Similarly, the initiative has allowed the organization to engage in advocacy related to the arbitrary arrests of migrants without due trial in countries such as Tunisia and Libya. These migrants are often displaced into the Sahara Desert in inhumane conditions and left to endure the adverse conditions of the region. Our organization seeks to bring to the attention of governmental authorities and other stakeholders the gross violations of the rights of these migrants.
Benefit and Impact
The impact of this initiative is clearly visible in the lives of migrants who were at risk of finding themselves in vulnerable situations, including human trafficking and sexual abuse, among others. One specific indicator of our success is the positive feedback we have received from the beneficiaries of the initiative. While the project has reached its planned completion, we aspire to continue our work with the support of funding from other partners and to share our extensive experience in the field of protecting and promoting the welfare of vulnerable migrants in Morocco. Furthermore, as a result of our advocacy in collaboration with other organizations after the June 24th tragedy in Nador, attention was drawn to the inaction of the authorities in identifying many of these migrants.
