Help with social housing for refugees0 Replies
My friend's 84 year old father is still in Damascus, and he realises it is really time to go. He has Swiss nationality (next to Syrian), thus he has right to social benefits (without having to claim refugee status). However, they do not offer any help finding social or cheap housing. He has never lived in Switzerland, but speaks excellent English and French. Does anyone know what kind of organisations can help him? He must find something soon after he arrives as he cannot afford expensive temporary housing.I am a Caritas volunteer at a refugee centre in Belgium by the way. I am grateful for any advice you can give.
