Access to basic rights

VidK works from the basic principle that every human being has the right to a dignified existence. We, therefore, mediate in getting them access to health care, a place to sleep, food and clothing. As a foundation, we also believe that other rights, such as the right to family life, the right to education, and the right to safely report to the police, are basic rights.

VidK currently supports approximately 300 undocumented migrants in Eindhoven in gaining access to these basic rights. Even though undocumented migrants legally have access to most of these facilities, access is not a self-evident. There is a great deal of unfamiliarity among both our clients and the organisations that offer these facilities. VidK thus mediates access and informs partner organisations in Eindhoven and clients about the possibilities.
