In September in the Foundation for Somalia the six cultural assistants started their work. They are here to help migrants in the most urgent situations. As for now most of their times the leaders spent in the Office for Foreigners, supporting migrants applying for residence permits.
However, helping to obtain visa or residence card is not the only activity. Our leaders are really busy! Only lately two of them have been assisting as translators at medical consultations.
– A women from Eritrea who has been suffering from a toothache for some time contacted me. As she didn’t know Polish, there was nobody to help her. Finally, she found the Foundation. Together we visited the dentist and solved the problem quickly, says Ghaazi S Saeed from Somalia.
One of leader’s task is to support migrants in searching for flats:
– I’ve managed to find a flat, which is basic, but neat, for two women from Ukraine, Mariya from Ukraine explains. It wasn’t easy at this period, but finally we found something for them in the Mokotów district, she adds smiling.
The leader’s activities are performed as a part of the project ‘Actively + Legally’, which is co-financed form the European Fund for the Integration of Third-Country Nationals and state budget.
