IOM open day AZC 2022
Next Saturday, several AZCs (asylum seeker centres) in the Netherlands will open their doors.
You can meet residents of the asylum seekers' centers on that day and get an impression of daily life in an asylum seekers' centre. Especially in times like these, an open day has the valuable role of bringing people closer together and fostering mutual understanding.
We will also be present at a large number of locations.

IOM Chief Statement Following Meeting with President Zelenskyy and Visit to Ukraine
Kyiv – I have been deeply affected by the unimaginable human suffering and destruction that I have witnessed during the last four days spent in Ukraine.
For people here, the war that began six months ago is a painful, daily reality. More than 5,700 civilians have died and a further 8,200 have been injured; the actual toll likely being far higher. Millions of families have been uprooted, infrastructure destroyed, homes turned to rubble and essential services disrupted.
Over 6.9 million people are internally displaced, and more than 7 million others have fled outside Ukraine.
