Tunisia | COVID-19: Launch of a platform to aid foreigners in situations of financial fragility (Tunisie | Covid-19 : Lancement d’une application pour venir en aide aux étrangers en situation de fragilité financière)

Date Enacted: April 2020
Country: Tunisia

Given the ways in which foreigners in vulnerable situations were impacted by Covid-19, the Ministry of Human Rights worked with civil society organizations to create a “commission . . . to monitor the humanitarian situation of foreigners residing in Tunisia.” The commission launched an online platform “to collect requests for aid” from migrants “or their representatives” and “offers of donations or financial aid” from private actors.
