NGOs launch roadmap for handover of refugee response to Greek Government
History of CARE International's work in Greece
From 2016 to March 2018, CARE International started assisting refugees stranded in Greece following the influx of refugees to Europe. CARE International and partner organizations supported those stranded in Greece by providing financial assistance, legal and psychosocial support, specialized accommodation for displaced women and young men, as well as support with translation and bureaucratic processes.
As CARE International was phasing out from Greece, we made all efforts to ensure the continuation of the services we have been offering by handing over these projects to organizations in Greece, most of whom were partnering with the UN Refugee Agency.
Today, our work in Greece is mainly through national partners and networks with whom we continue to monitor the situation for refugees in Greece.
