Co-operation agreement between Social Affairs Ministry and SAMU Social to help homeless people

Social Affairs Minister Mohamed Trabelsi and SAMU Social President Xavier Emmanuelli signed a co-operation agreement on Friday to help homeless people.

Trabelsi said in a statement to the press that his department and SAMU Social will work together to ensure the protection of vulnerable groups who are victims of social exclusion and marginalisation, such as those without family support, abused women, single mothers, teenagers living in a conflicting family or school environment and persons with a mental disability.

The assistance provided to these categories to improve their living conditions consists, according to the Minister, in giving them a shelter, help them and provide them with the necessary psychological support while trying to guarantee their social integration by allowing them to benefit from a vocational training and then help them find a job.

This initiative, he specified, regards in a first stage the governorates of Greater Tunis and will be then generalised to all regions.

For his part, Xavier Emmanuelli said that the Samu social team who works outside the administrative hours (from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.) and during public holidays, help homeless persons living in public spaces and to persons without family support who live in very difficult social conditions.
