Solidarity in action with #LeaveNoOneBehind means: We support people on the move and initiatives who do the same. We try to react quickly in crisis situations and provide a platform for active initiatives and organizations at the EU’s external borders and beyond.
Take a look at the various campaigns we have run to raise awareness about the situation of people on the move, to call politicians to action, and to raise funds for LeaveNoOneBehind and our partner organizations.
