The HOME Project
The HOME Project is a unifying initiative set up to address the needs of refugees and refugee children in particular who have arrived in Greece alone. Through its programs it looks to provide relief from suffering to all those affected by the crisis and to give hope out of despair.
At the heart of this disaster is the little told story of the children, refugees who have been ripped from their homelands through violence and war, and who seek the basic security which most of us take for granted. Over half of the displaced population are children. Many of them are unaccompanied, alone, forced to fend for themselves and at risk of danger. This number continues to increase and with border closures they are now stranded in Greece. Thousands of children are without parents, family or any kind of guardian and urgently need support.
These children are scattered around the refugee camps, police stations and detention centers. The living conditions are horrific and inhumane. Through no fault of their own, these children are the innocent victims of this crisis. They flee from violence only to find it again at a European border. They are the silent heart of this disaster.
The HOME Project exists to bring these people to safe haven. It provides security, dignity and decent living conditions for the most vulnerable. It serves to recognize common humanity and to do something for those who need it most. At the HOME Project, they Help, Overcome, Motivate, Empower. Together they hope to build a better future.See more
