Vores asylbørn (Our asylum children)

ABOUT

Our Asylum Children is a voluntary association which offers free contact persons, legal advice and family treatment for asylum-seeking children and their families. In addition, the association looks after the asylum children's political interests, such as ensuring them better rights to education. The association is growing all the time as more and more children get stuck in the asylum system and therefore the association struggles to keep up with the demand and at present finds itself forced to reject children who need support due to lack of resources.
