Collecting phones for detainees in closed centres and calling for rechargers

  • Collecting phones for detainees in closed centres

Detainees in closed centers are provided with a small telephone (without camera) to contact their relatives, lawyers or other services. The telephone was lent to them by the administration of the closed centres. (see internal regulations

For several weeks now, we have learned that new arrivals in certain centres no longer receive telephones but must buy them for 25 euros,  Many of them now find themselves without the possibility of having contact with the outside world. 

We can send the collected phones or give you the names of the people concerned so that you can send them yourself. contact

  • PHONE RECHARGES  needed for the retainees in closed centres

We receive loads of requests for phone recharges from people retained in closed centres. Very often, their phone is the only way to contact the outside, be it their family, friends, lawyer, or to publicly inform on their situation.

Whether their arrest took place on their migratory journey, in their home, whether their families and friends are here or in their home country, it is crucial for them to be able to warn and communicate with them. Without your support, they would be many incapable of doing so.

You may support these detainees by buying a 10 euros or 5 euros Lycamobile recharge from your grocery, night shop or bookshop. Send us the pin code written on the recharge by email at or by SMS on 0032(0)484026781. We will then send the code to the detainees who asked for it. If it is easier for you, you may also pay, or even better set up a standing order of 5, 10, 20 euros or more on the bank account especially created for that purpose :
