Fighting for migrant rights in North Macedonia

Until recently, migrants traveling through North Macedonia didn’t have legal rights, putting them at greater risk of trafficking and other dangers. GFC partner Legis has successfully advocated for a law that creates short-term legal protections for migrants, and the organization has deployed mobile teams to provide medical aid, food, and psychosocial services. Find out more about how Legis supports migrants – including unaccompanied children – and learn how the organization has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic.

South Asia is experiencing a devastating wave of the coronavirus pandemic, and our partners are on the frontlines supporting children and youth. Donate today to support children in South Asia affected by COVID-19.
