Releasing resilience and building networks of resilience report
JUNE 2021: The Building Resilience project has released its latest report, titled Releasing resilience and building networks of resilience: learning from the survey, interviews, and evaluation. The Building Resilience project is a partnership between Migrant Voice, Kanlungan Filipino Consortium and RAPAR. This report comprises the findings of a survey with 198 migrants about their experiences during the pandemic, alongside in-depth interviews and focus groups with 25 participants. The report is also an evaluation of our six-month Building Resilience project, including its impact and processes.
Among the survey findings, 80% of respondents were worried about their financial situation during the pandemic, and about being able to afford food and other items that they might need. In addition, half of all respondents said they were unable to afford hand sanitiser, face masks, soap or cleaning products.
The Building Resilience project provided spaces for migrants with limited immigration status and no recourse to public funds to discuss shared experiences throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and form networks of solidarity.
