“Denying food: Instead of receiving protection. People go hungry on EU soil”: This is a very significant issue that urged civic society organizations in Greece to address a formal letter to the Prime Minister in Greece, the Minister of Migration & Asylum, the President of the European Commission and the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs.

The Greek Forum of Refugees’ Football Club: The Football Team of the Greek Forum of Refugees is an ideal tool for social inclusion and community empowerment, regarding asylum seekers, refugees, migrants of first and second generation and stateless people. This team has managed not only to create the sense of belonging for newcomers arrive in Greece, but, also, to bridge the gap among refugee communities and the host society. The team has helped the Greek Forum of Refugees to shift the public narrative towards a much more positive perspective regarding the reception and inclusion of the refugee and the migrant population. The Greek Forum of Refugees struggles to sustain the team financially. Therefore, we have decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign in order to sustain our standard costs this year. Please support our mission by donating.
