Thousands of refugees are arriving on the shores of Greece every day. After the treacherous trip across the Mediterranean, in rubber dinghies over high waves, they arrive far from where they are able to get legal papers and continue their journey.
Colder weather is now adding to severe exhaustion and hunger as threats to these displaced families, and many have injuries or illness that need addressing.
ADRA Slovenia will be leading the implementation of a project that meets the immediate needs for these newly arriving refugees, partnering with ASI (Adventist Laymen’s Service & Industries), UNHCR, and several supporting NGOs.
Refugees will receive food, drink, medical and dental assistance, and bus transport from the coast where they land to the capital where they can start paperwork and access the ferry to the mainland for further travel.
