Dianova Madrid Humanitarian Reception Centre (CAH)

The humanitarian reception centre, Dianova Madrid, provides a service of urgent humanitarian aid for immigrants.

The centre’s objective is to mitigate the vulnerable situations of immigrants, providing them with accommodation and support, covering their basic needs, and equipping them with social skills to promote their integration into our society.

The centre deals with immigrants, especially those who have arrived at coastal areas and in the cities of Ceuta and Melilla, thereby acting in a social and humanitarian interest. These people are vulnerable because of physical deterioration and a lack of social support, familial support, and/or a lack of financial resources.
