For decades, Greece has been the entry point to Europe for refugees from the Middle East, South and Central Asia and Africa. Now with over 1 million refugees living in Greece since 2015, Greek authorities have had to accelerate their reception strategies to accommodate the influx of arriving migrants, no longer able to journey further into Europe.
The refugee crisis has deepened the economic challenges that Greece has had to confront for over a decade, while prioritising integration planning for refugees as they begin a new life in their host country.
In collaboration with local and international partners, we have provided our relief units in Greece as temporary homes for displaced families to live in safely, and infrastructure to promote improved health, protection and education. Learn more about our support.
