EPIM Covid response initiative: solidarity with the most vulnerable people seeking refuge in Greece
In the refugee camps of Greece, the coronavirus crisis is hitting an already vulnerable population hard. Emergency funding from the European Programme for Integration and Migration (EPIM), of which the King Baudouin Foundation is a founding member, is supporting the work of eight NGOs on the islands.
In Greece’s overcrowded refugee camps, Covid-19 is a crisis on top of a crisis on top of a crisis. Following the country’s financial collapse and its subsequent struggle to deal with the huge numbers of vulnerable people seeking refuge on its shores, today’s public health disaster presents tremendous challenges medically, politically and socially.
