Emergency aid in crises

Wherever possible, our wortundtat partner in Athens provides necessary help in cases of crisis as soon as possible. For example, families who have no money for shopping are receiving the occasional food parcel. In winter, when temperatures are below zero and the few public facilities for the homeless are overcrowded, some of them are able to spend the night on a camp bed in the large hall of a Social Diaconic Centre.

An example: refugees on Lesvos

Whilst 2015 and 2016, refugees came to Europe via the Greek Islands, wortundtat assisted the Greek partner in setting up and operating a point of contact for refugees on Lesvos.
