Socially handicapped refugees


Socially handicapped refugees include: unaccompanied young people; mothers with several children; unmarried couples with children; families with four or more children, or with an aged or disabled dependent; households in which the main potential breadwinner is an unemployed or under-employed refugee over 45 years of age who does not have the requisite skills; chronic alcoholics, prisoners, ex-prisoners and refugees unadapted to work, and families in which such a person is the potential breadwinner. The social disabilities affecting a number of refugees of this type arise from mental disorders such as psychosis, psychoneurosis or mental deficiency, which reveal themselves through alcoholism, idling, isolation, and aggressive or promiscuous behaviour.
