The European Return and Reintegration Network is an initiative of 16 European states that helps to ensure that people on the move can return home in a dignified and humane manner. ERRIN is working with local organisations on the ground in 40 countries, offering comprehensive assistance for returning migrants. Following the initial aid provided right upon arrival, the reintegration support may involve support for housing, medical treatment, vocational training and educational needs, or setting up a business.


In Afghanistan, we work with IRARA. WELDO is a not-for-profit organisation  active in Pakistan since 2003. Over that time, WELDO has worked with over nine hundred national and international partners on a wide array of projects. WELDO started working on returns and reintegration in Pakistan in 2010. Since then, they have provided returns and reintegration support to over seven thousand returnees.

Considering going back to Pakistan supported by ERRIN?

Ask your social worker or counsellor for details. If you have already returned to Pakistan, contact our local partner – WELDO.
