As of the beginning of 2017, over 62,000 refugees Syria, Afghanistan, and elsewhere are currently stranded in Greece, primarily at refugee camps that lack adequate housing, structure, and material goods for residents.
The greatest need the camps are currently facing is the management and distribution of crucial resources, such as water and clothing. CCS volunteers fill this need by funding, supplying and managing the distribution of milk, tea, hygiene items, clothing, and laundry services to all camp residents in a dignified, respectful, and equitable manner. Another significant challenge in the camps is simply a lack of activities and purpose for the residents.
The future is uncertain for these families, and restoring dignity and purpose in their daily lives is a crucial goal of this program. Bringing a sense of normalcy and routine in a chaotic and foreign environment is so valued, needed, and appreciated by residents. Join CCS Greece today and become a part of our team!
