The Idea behind the start of Care Link West Midlands

The idea of starting a charity under the name of Care Link West Midlands came from the refugee community themselves. Even though the issue at stake was health, members who first met to discuss the idea geared the subject towards a more specific object (i.e. barriers to integration in the host country). The outcome of the meeting was a common vision shared by all participants resulting in a common agreement to form a charity organization determined to pave way for those people from African French speaking countries applying for asylum in the west Midlands and those African French speaking countries originals who have been granted refugee status.
