Homeless Refugee Family support in Athens

Athens is under crisis with homeless refugee families since the Ministry started evicting families from their Unhcr homes who have been granted asylum in Greece . Not only do they lose their home but after 3 months they can lose their cash support.
Hope Cafe has been feeding up to 200 meals a day in Victoria Platea to ensure families are not going hungry.
Also we are delivering 44 meals per day to Elionas camp for the evictees of clandestina and Azidi whom even though the IOM promised they would accommodate with homes many are still living in a marquee with no running water or kitchen facilities. IOM feed a huge camp but they do not feed the 44 people most of them children .
Many of the families who were evicted from Clandestina and Azidi squats were taken into detention camps to be processed but what is happening now is they are being released to the streets with no where to go . They accumulate in Victoria in the evenings when food is being distributed and approach us to seek housing. How do we walk away knowing they have nowhere to go .
In the past I have taken families home with me but now I’m in a tiny studio it’s not possible . Putting people in hotels without offering long term solutions is unfair ... and it’s expensive. It’s costs at least 400 euro per month to house a family including bills and food when they have nothing . Apartments are a constant cost and need paying for at least 6 months to give a family chance to find a way to support themselves or access ministry funds . €2400 euro per family. I know an organization that funded 4 families in 1 week . It’s fantastic .
Hope Cafe is small we rely on your donations for everything we achieve.
Help us feed hope ❤️
