Assisting Vulnerable Migrants
“Without timely, quality assistance, vulnerable migrants can be left unable to recover from dangerous and exploitative circumstances and may face continued rights violations, re-trafficking, and/or permanent mental and physical hardships. GAF exists to ensure that no identified vulnerable migrant is left unattended” -GAF Project Manager
IOM’s Global Assistance Fund (GAF) offers sustainable, personalized, immediate protection and comprehensive, direct assistance packages to migrants across the world. This includes migrants vulnerable to, or who have experienced, violence, exploitation, and abuse, such as victims of trafficking, unaccompanied or separated migrant children, and migrants in extreme psychological and physical distress.
