Support to the identification, assistance and protection of migrants in need; and (4) awarenessraising with regards to alternative livelihood options, including safe migration. IOM implements this two-year project in Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda.

implementing partner AMREF offers free, non-discriminatory, migrant-friendly and
comprehensive health care to urban migrants and community members.
The Eastleigh Community Wellness Centre offers the following services:
