Guia de ONGs para Inmigrantes

Las ONGs que se dedican a inmigración defienden la inclusión de estas personas en sus países de llegada, sobre todo aquellos que huyen de su país en busca de una vida mejor. Se trata de defender sus derechos, darles cobijo y asistencia médica para favorecer su inclusión legal en el país al que han llegado huyendo de la violencia. El problema es que este proceso de la legalización es muy difícil y las condiciones en las que llegan muchos de ellos inhumanas y no se da abasto en la asistencia pero las ONGs hacen todo lo posible para que la inclusión se lleve a cabo.

Guide of NGOs for migrants

The NGOs that dedicate themselves to immigration defend the inclusion of these people in their countries of arrival, especially those who flee their country searching a better life. It is about defending their rights, giving them shelter and medical assistance to favor their legal inclusion in the country that they have arrived fleeing from violence. This process of legalization is very difficult and the conditions in which many of them arrive are inhumane and can not cope with the assistance but NGOs do everything possible for the inclusion to take place.
