During the past years, there has been a massive influx of refugees, originating from the Middle East and North Africa countries heading towards Europe, fleeing from extreme political situations and war. As a consequence, the refugee crisis is a phenomenon appearing throughout Europe; some countries are the final destination of the refugees (especially Northern Europe) while others are transit zones (such as Albania, Romania) and others are receiving the large number of refugee population that arrive at the borderline of Europe (such as Greece).
Refugees and immigrants entering a new country face several problems. This is mainly because most of them cannot speak the language of the country in which they are hosted. Under framework of the project “Refugee Women – International Cooperation For Rehabilitation And Social Integration Of Refugee Women in Turkey and in Europe”, the Institute for Entrepreneurship Development in cooperation with partners from universities and organizations from the countries of Turkey, Latvia, Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic and Albania , created a booklet for each country) with organizations that deal with or contribute to issues related to refugees and migrants.
In particular, the list is categorized as follows:
- Migration services
- Health services
- Educational services
- Employment services
- Psychological support services
The purpose of this catalogue is to provide a comprehensive booklet including all organizations in Greece to which refugees can address for various issues they faced.
This booklet is mainly for refugees and migrants, but also for people who are dealing with refugees and immigrants.
