Crowdfunding funding phase
It is with heavy hearts that we watch the disaster unfolding in Ukraine. We are bracing for the arrival of people (Ukrainians and other nationals) who are fleeing the war and on their way to Luxembourg to seek protection. They will need food and accommodation of course; they will also need to be listened to, and to be provided with accurate information so that they can exercise their rights.

Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

Passerell provides information and support for administrative and legal proceedings, especially asylum-related proceedings. We provide specific assistance to vulnerable individuals who are face not just with migration-related issues but also with violations of their rights such as the rights of the child, access to (mental) health care, protection for victims of domestic violence… Passerell also works to support family reunification by making contact with embassies and refugee camps abroad and circulating information.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Diversifying our sources of funding to ensure our independence

For six years we have been struggling to finance our activities, as Luxembourgish ministries still deny us any substantive financial support. Our volunteer lawyers perform invaluable work, but our organization cannot function without paying its three employees who welcome several hundreds of individuals each year and help them have their voices heard and their rights respected.

Why would you support this project?

We strive to develop and diversify our funding sources. We are convinced that our work not only helps our direct beneficiaries, but also contributes to protecting the rule of law in Luxembourg, by fostering a genuine human rights culture. Each citizen can participate in this commitment to supporting the rule of law.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

It will be used to pay employees in order to keep defending human rights of refugees and vulnerable people in Luxembourg.

Donate to Passerell and help us humanize asylum law.
