Large NGOs take on the largest part of our responsibility to provide care for refugees in Europe; however, they are very restricted in their acting. They usually get government funding and therefore have to abide by their bureaucracy and therefore have difficulties taking care of all cases that fall under their responsibility.
On of the projects we do for them is providing food supplements when new families come to the housing projects of large NGOs, such as Solidarity Now and the Norwegian Refugee Council. For new arrivals, they are able to provide food from the first of the next month. This sometimes means that if we don’t provide food and other basic necessities, families are left up to 4 weeks without their basic needs provided.
