Jesuit Refugee Service Europe

Description The Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) is an international Catholic organization that specializes in working with refugees and migrants. Their mission is to accompany, serve, and plead the cause of refugees and forcibly displaced people. They are particularly concerned with the "forgotten" refugees who have moved out of the media spotlight.

The European branch works in 20 countries, including Lebanon, where they give aid to asylum seekers and undocumented migrants. JRS provides food and shelter to destitute migrants and visits asylum seekers in detention to give legal advice and counseling to those traumatized by persecution and flight. They serve as chaplains in closed facilities as well as in open reception and accommodation centers.
