The purpose of the project funded with support from United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees is to provide psychological and social support for refugees and asylum seekers in Eskişehir, Bilecik and Kütahya. This project has been implemented since 2007 via Human Resource Development Foundation cooperating with Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
Within the project, psycho-social support has been provided to many refugees and asylum seekers in selected cities through Refugee Support Units established by Human Resource Development Foundation. Workers including psychologists, social workers and translators in the units have taught ways of dealing with the difficult situations to refugees and asylum seekers. Furthermore, refugees and asylum seekers with psychiatric disease are directed to the psychiatrists. Besides, they are also supported socially by experts working in the Refugee Support Units.
Nearly 5000 refugees and asylum seekers from Eskişehir, Kütahya and Bilecik were provided consultancy services between 2007 and 2008.
