We are very pleased to have met with the Béziers CIMADE last night to discuss how we can work collaboratively to support the remaining Syrian families living in Beziers as they apply for asylum. CIMADE’s mission is to defend the rights of foreigners, asylum seekers, and refugees.
We learned a great deal about the steps in the process and were interested to find out that the CIMADE in Beziers is an exception in France in that they have paid staff. All other CIMADES in France are run by volunteers and so can be an excellent way for individuals to get involved and offer support locally. Please consider looking for the CIMADE closest to you at their website.
