Our main mission is

“Education on genocide and assistance of the survivors and victims of the genocide”

Strategy

Our Outreach

TO CONTRIBUTE

Genocide ideology and repetitive mass killing practices seem to be deeply rooted in the African countries of the Great Lakes Region and result in enormous consequences for local populations. The Forum pour la Memoire Vigilante "FMV" feels strongly called out to contribute in the areas of Psychology, Social, Legal and Medical.

PARTNERSHIP

The Partnership is part of a program that will be performed through different activities that our organization initiates to effectively respond to these challenges. The program plans to partner with other local public organizations, the diaspora, national and international non-governmental organizations, working in the same field like us, to see genocide crimes banned forever around the world.

EXCHANGE

An expanded partnership program with those above mentioned organizations will be developed to share experiences or benefit from different forms of support.

Actions

Psychological

Many refugees, who have experienced traumatic events, have clinical sequelae that need to be dealt with. Those refugees witnessed massacres, summary executions, tortures, rapes … and they are in a precarious situation. FMV wants to contribute tackle these distress situations. Psychological support will help refugees and immigrants to maintain self-esteem, which will enable them to rebuild social structures and turn these survivors and victims of genocide into active survivors rather than passive victims.

Social

The Forum pour la Memoire Vigilante “FMV” helps refugees and immigrants to transfer from the vulnerability stage to the stage of contributing to the development of society, which makes easier the integration into the host country. The social support service is a solidarity and action plan whose purpose is to help all refugees and immigrants who meet the needs for assistance.

Medical

The Forum pour la Mémoire Vigilante (FMV) helps refugees to access health care through awareness activities, advocacy and the implementation of local social structures amongst refugees. These activities are intended to support refugees who do not have the complementary health insurance yet and to guide refugees with emergency health concerns.

Legal

In the country of origin where refugees were born and lived until the day they decided to go into exile, crimes, torture, imprisonment, looting, theft, etc. are often commonplace. Hence, refugees need legal support to deal with it. The FMV provides legal assistance to refugees (in priority) and to immigrants who meet assistance needs. Legal accompaniment includes the provision of information, advice, and legal representation on refugee protection and property matters.
