Parisians come together to help migrants

Parisians come together to help migrants
 
Migrants line up to get tea at Porte de La Chapelle near Paris, July 2017 RFI

It has become an unfortunate yearly cycle: with the rise of summer temperatures, there is an increase in the number of migrants showing up in Paris.

They set up tents and mattresses on the streets, as authorities struggle to process their asylum claims and find them temporary housing.

In the meantime, to accommodate the growing numbers, it has fallen to NGOs and individuals - many of them residents of the capital - to cover day-to-day needs: food, information and basic support.

RFI meets some of the people helping out.
