We continue to run mobile clinics in the suburbs of Paris to provide medical consultations, cultural mediation, and social support to people living in unsafe conditions, including migrants and unaccompanied minors. These clinics also help to track medical and humanitarian trends in the camps, as they facilitate early detection of medical and humanitarian needs, to which we can alert the local health authorities.
During the winter, we assisted hundreds of unaccompanied minors who were sleeping on the streets. We also provided logistical and financial support to local organizations and agencies who assist minors who are homeless on a daily basis, by distributing tents and relief items, such as blankets and clothing, to help them cope with the cold.
Another mobile team provided support to unaccompanied minors living in state-provided accommodation, to ensure that they had access to legal information on their appeal procedure and to help with any follow-up.
In Marseille, we continued to offer multi-disciplinary support to unaccompanied minors with mental and physical vulnerabilities in our 20-bed shelter. We also ran outreach activities and offered logistical and financial support to local organizations working with people in vulnerable circumstances.
