The WATIZAT organization promotes access to information for people who live in exile in France. It publishes a multilingual guide (French, English, Arabic, Pashto and Dari) that is updated monthly since March 2018.
Its purpose is to inform people who live in exile by giving them access to clear information on the asylum procedure as well as useful addresses and tips that can be used daily.
The guide is updated every month to deliver the most accurate information possible in a context where organisations and laws related to asylum are constantly evolving.
The WATIZAT guide for Lyon is available only in French for the moment. You can download it in the Formalities section of the Spiky Community App !
THE WATIZAT GUIDE
COMPLETENESS - The guide includes both precise legal information on the asylum procedure and useful daily life tips and addresses (legal hotlines, food distribution, access to healthcare, showers, day care, French lessons, etc.). It aims to connect people in exile with organisations that are able to help them.
UPDATES - The guide is updated every month to provide the most accurate information possible in a context where organisations and laws related to asylum are constantly evolving. The month of publication is written on the cover of the guide. The cover color changes every month to quickly identify obsolete guides still circulating.
MULTILINGUAL - The guide is currently available in French, English, Arabic and Pashto in order to allow as many people as possible to have an adequate access to this information, even if they do not speak French. The different sections of the guide have been designed with people in exile in order to best meet their needs.
