Legal First Responders

To extend critical legal assistance to internally displaced people in a timely manner

Born out of the crisis, the Trust’s legal initiative assists displaced people with cost free legal aid as a means of helping them piece their lives back together. Lawyers work directly out of areas where displaced families are concentrated or from within the Trust’s community centres. Internally displaced people are afforded assistance with the reissuance of various civil documents and when applying for documentation for the very first time. The Trust’s lawyer network, across 7 governorates, means each lawyer is able to assist displaced people on familiar issues, as well as, others that they might not otherwise be able to counsel over. Significant efforts are also dedicated to proactively raising awareness of people’s legal rights and eligibilities to improve prevention and strengthen social reintegration. In 2016, the program’s 60 lawyers provided over 52,000 legal services
