Understanding the implications of the closure of refugee reception offices for the lives of women asylum seekers

3 case studies

This report documents the experiences of five individual refugee women affected by the closure of Refugee Reception Offices (RROs) in several parts of South Africa. Without access to these offices, asylum seekers face challenges regularising their stay, with negative repercussions on their daily lives. The report documents some of these challenges in three case studies along the themes of Motherhood; Health and Wellbeing; and Access to Services.
