Polish Center for International Aid (PCPM) and Better Shelter

The Polish Center for International Aid (PCPM) donated 118 units of the Relief Housing Unit (RHU) to EuroRelief, a civil society organization (CSO) responsible for implementing the shelters within the military compound in the Greek island of Lesvos.

Since 2015, Greece has been on the frontlines of Europe’s regional response to the influx of migrants and refugees reaching European shores through the Mediterranean Sea. Under the authority of the Greek government, RHUs have been used as temporary shelters for families which arrive on Greek shores.

EuroRelief has an official role assigned by the Greek Government in the camps in Lesvos They are in charge of shelter allocation and have a continual presence in the camp. They are also responsible for carrying out distributions of essential items and among other activities, however, shelter allocation is their main role.
