Additionally, to the range of actions undertaken by the authorities to reduce the potentially negative impact such measures may have on refugees’ lives, CCR in collaboration with the Bureau for Migration and Asylum agreed to provide food and hygiene products to the asylum-seekers living at the Temporary Accommodation Centre. The distribution of the stock of food and hygiene items was actively supported by the asylum-seekers living at the TAC.
