Help for refugees in Greece

Marwa and Odey had to flee from the war in Syria
Marwa and Odey had to flee from the war in Syria

Since the brutal civil war in Syria began in 2011, hundreds of thousands people have been killed. Many families have been torn apart and the standard of living has been set back by decades. There are almost no safe spaces left for the many innocent civilians. Therefore, the people flee to neighboring countries and especially Europe. Understandably, they often take high risks to save their lives.

The couple Marwa and Odey are two of many others that successfully escaped from the war torn country. After the situation got worse they flew from their home in Damascus towards the Turkish border. Marwa was already pregnant when they decided to leave their home. After smugglers helped them to cross the border, the couple realized that they couldn’t find the safe refuge in Turkey they had hoped for. Thus, they decided to risk the dangerous boat ride to Greece to finally find a peaceful place to stay.

Fortunately, Marwa and Odey found a temporary home in a refugee camp in Kato Milia. Since then our member organization ADRA helps and supports them. A few weeks after the arrival, Marwa gave birth to a healthy young girl. The young family now wants nothing more than to go back to normal and establish a self-determined life.

But there are almost no jobs for refugees in Kato Milia and finding an own flat is very difficult. Even though they are safe now, the situation for the more than 45,000 refugees in Greece is far from normal. Our member organizations are giving their best every day to help the many children, women and men on the different stages of their escape from war and suffering.

We are very grateful for your donation for our project „Help for refugees“. Your support helps us to set up safe spaces for refugees all over the world and support them in their wish for a more peaceful life. Thank you very much!
