The first mobile homes are being built as from Monday, a task carried out by the Civil Protection Unit, the army and the Red Cross. "We are being confronted with the biggest instream (of asylum seekers) ever, just like the rest of Europe. Something needed to be done as our network was getting saturated", says Francken.
Each living unit will be able to accommodate 6 people. These will be offered the 3 basic B's: bed, bath, bread. It's a temporary measure until places in other reception centres are ready.
