The Egyptian Foundation for Refugee Rights (EFRR) provides legal aid to refugees (and migrants) in Egypt in proceedings before Egyptian courts and Egyptian administrative procedures. Our main programmes of legal aid include representation in detention and non-refoulement proceeding, providing assistance and representation to refugees who are victims of crime, and providing assistance and representation to groups of refugees seeking to organise themselves into community-based organisations. EFRR also provides legal assistance and represents refugees before civil registration offices to facilitate the issue of birth certificates, and before the immigration authority to facilitate acquisition of nationality and authenticate marriage and divorce certificates.
