"We are deeply honoured by the visit of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou to the accommodation centre for unaccompanied refugee children in Nea Ionia", says Ambassador of Norway to Greece Frode Overland Andersen. "Today's International Day is also an opportunity to express our gratitude to the staff and volunteers of the Σύλλογος Μερίμνης Ανηλίκων και Νέων - Society for the Care of Minors, for the important work they are doing. Giving care and shelter to the most vulnerable among refugees is a paramount humanitarian task. Today’s high level visit underlines the importance of this work".
"As a donor, #Norway contributes with Euro 33 million on assisting Greece on the #asylum and #migration sector. Our assistance on this sector is a concrete and tangible way of showing #solidarity with Greece".
#HOUSE2 project, funded by the EEA and Norway Grants, is now in its full capacity, providing shelter, support and hope to refugee children and single underage mothers with their babies.
#house2 is part of the Asylum and Migration program operated by ΣΟΛ Crowe and HumanRights360
