Pauluskerk Refugeework

Pauluskerk Refugeework (before ‘Stichting OMZO’) is an independent foundation connected to the Pauluskerk. The commit themselves to people in Rotterdam and surroundings that don’t have an official resident permit. Refugeework mediates in the direction of legal assistance and governmental institutions to get a permanent permit. Simply because we would also like to be treated that way if we would be in that situation. In case we don’t succeed to get a permit, Refugeework has conversations about the next procedure. That could be a time-out, a base in life in terms of a meaningful daily activities or conversations about returning to their country of origin if that is possible. There is a close collaboration with IOM.
