Passerell warns about its emergency and the impact that the end of a large part of its activities will have on the rule of law in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
With a heavy heart, Passerell employees explain to the beneficiaries and their regular contacts (social workers, lawyers, psychologists) that they will soon no longer be able to receive them. "Passerell can no longer guarantee its funding beyond August, so we cannot maintain a salaried activity to welcome people seeking information on their rights in our offices", explains Ambre Schulz, project coordinator of the association.
Passerell is :
o For the past six years, we have been helping asylum seekers, refugees and vulnerable migrants to exercise their rights;
o three full-time employees, one part-time interpreter, and one person with a work integration contract;
o 35 volunteer lawyers working in the Pink Paper Unit;
o More than 800 cases being followed up since August 2021, and up to 10 daily interviews with people in distress;
o Since March 2022, a mobilisation to answer the countless questions of people who have fled Ukraine to apply for temporary protection in Luxembourg.
The association hopes to obtain positive responses to funding requests sent in recent months, but nothing is certain.
