Summary

This is our fifth year in Greece, upholding our mission to provide a dignified, respectful and empowering humanitarian response for refugees. Currently, we run psychosocial support programmes targeting vulnerable groups - children and youth - in Ritsona Refugee Camp, mainland Greece. We can't do it without your support!

Challenge

Thousands of refugees and asylum seekers are still stranded in Greece, but they are increasingly fading from public consciousness. We are counting on your support to carry our work forward. For the coming months, we have strong partnerships in place, long-term strategies, and a tireless team fighting for our mission. In 2020 we have faced many challenges, and we urgently need your help to continue to adapt and meet these challenges.

Solution

We have never ceased our commitment to serve as a lighthouse for those in need. Whether on the shores of Lesvos or in Ritsona camp, our teams have been there as an unwavering beacon of warmth and stability. We have a wealth of ideas for activities in Ritsona, which has almost tripled in size in the past year alone. Thanks to you, we have already been able to formalise our Resident Volunteer programme and re-launch our Sports Programming! Your support ensures that we can carry our plans forward.

Long-Term Impact

In Ritsona Camp, our programmes are sustainable, accountable and culturally sensitive, with the new Resident Volunteer programme allowing camp residents to take ownership of the spaces and participate in their development. As thousands are caught in limbo, LHR gives them room to develop their talents, build their resilience and form a community.
