“Within the framework of the permanent resettlement project, the first group of 21 Syrian refugees from Turkey arrived today in Slovenia. These are the four families who come from the war zones in Syria and will be settled in Maribor.

All four families will live in Maribor, one in the integration house, and three in the dwellings managed by the Office for the Care and Integration of Migrants.

Everyone has already recognized international protection, and in the coming months they have to prepare for their independent life in Slovenia. In doing so, they will be assisted, among other things, with an orientation program aimed at learning the basics of the Slovene language, assisting in document management and practically learning about everyday life. Once completed, the orientation program will be integrated into integration assistance programs.” (translated from Sio1)
