VdA has partnered with PAR (Support Programme to Refugees) since 2015, a platform comprised by organizations of the civil society, designed to promote a fostering culture and support to refugees, and that entails two crucial operational axes: Project PAR Families and Project PAR Forefront. PAR Families is a foster and integration project for refugee families in Portugal, within a community context, and is supported by a long list of organizations (non-profit organizations, NGOs in general, companies, etc). PAR Forefront was developed to support refugees of neighbouring countries, fundraising to support local work of communities at risk and refugees, thus enabling them to live safely and with increasing dignity.
