Johannesburg's Migrants' Help Desk

 

Johannesburg's Migrants' Help Desk does all it can to assist foreign refugees who have fled hunger, poverty and violence in their home countries.

"MAKING Jozi work for migrants, making migrants work for Jozi" is the stated objective of the strategy document for the migrant help desk and Joburg's long-run migrant policy.

The City's Migrant Help Desk aims to ensure that migrants feel they are part of an inclusive city.

Its objectives are:

  • To develop a service frontline that provides migrants with relevant information on available services;
  • Develop and conduct anti-xenophobia awareness campaigns with City staff as well as local communities;
  • Establish and maintain partnerships with migrant organisations to identify concerns and address service gaps; and
  • Liaise with and lobby provincial government departments on issues relating to migrants.
