JRS Switzerland accompanies and supports refugees by establishing safe spaces where people can share experiences, meals and their skills. In Switzerland, refugees and asylum seekers are at risk of being sent back to their country of origin.  JRS Switzerland does everything possible to prevent this from happening with the help of parishes and churches.
