The IRC in Greece (Greek language version)

As of June 2019, an estimated 76,000 refugees including over 3,800 unaccompanied children, live in Greece, more than 15,500 of these on the Greek islands, often in crowded, substandard conditions. Over 75% of the newly arrived are from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Palestine and more than half are women and children. IRC Hellas responds to the needs of the most vulnerable with a holistic approach that spans from reception to integration; on the islands and on the mainland.
