There are very few organisations providing assistance to migrants in Croatia and there is no organisation assisting specifically undocumented migrants. The three main organisations limited support can be obtained from are:
CMS – Centar za Mirovne Studije (Center for Peace Studies)
Telephone: +385 01 482 0094
Fax: +385 01 482 0094
Address: Kuća ljudskih prava, Selska cesta 112a, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia+
Working hours: 9:00 – 17:00
CMS is a civil society association, working on a variety of topics, among them is also migrants and asylum seekers rights. Their priority is working on advocacy, but they also provide psycho-social assistance, mainly through the work of volunteers who visit the centers for asylum seekers, provide Croatian language lessons etc.
HPC – Hrvatski Pravni Centar
Telephone: +385 (1) 4854-934
Fax: +385 (1) 4835-013
Address: Andrije Hebranga 21, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia
HPC provide free legal assistance to asylum seekers, write reports and conduct monitoring of asylum seekers and migrants rights in Croatia. Their capacity in terms of providing free legal assistance is very limited and not all migrants get their assistance. Vulnerable groups have a priority. If you are really in need of legal help, it is a good idea to keep calling them.
Hrvatski Crveni križ – Croatian Red Cross
Telephone: + 385 1 4655 814
Fax: + 385 1 4655 365
Address: Ulica Crvenog križa 14, P.P.93, 10001 Zagreb, Croatia
The Croatian Red Cross provides limited humanitarian assistance to migrants detained in the detention center of Ježevo, those waiting for the response to their asylum claim in the reception centers for asylum seekers, as well as migrants who have received the status of international protection in Croatia.
HSUST is active in Slavonski Brod state refugee camp and on the refugee route since September 2015. They provide court translators, humanitarian aid and translations for refugees.
