Life for displaced families in Greece gets tougher by the day. At the moment, most of the displaced families we support here in Crete are composed of single mothers (widowed or divorced) and young children and this makes them particularly vulnerable. While waiting for the asylum, these families are somehow protected by governamental and European agencies. However, once their request are accepted or refused, they are left to fend for themselves.
With your donations we aim to give them and their children the dignity they deserve. We organize Greek and English lessons so that women are capable to find work. Then we help with housing, food insecurity and we facilitate and ensure the children go to school. Small things, like being able to afford bus tickets, make an ocean of difference to finding work or receiving an education.
