Refugees who find themselves in these predicaments call Embrace Relief, and we place them into emergency housing until we can help them find a place to live. Furthermore, we provide translators to assist with their search, asylum paperwork, and place the children into school.
Adopt a Refugee Family
This program enables those within the United States who want to get involved in refugee relief by being personally matched with a refugee family in Greece. We currently have 110 families who have been symbolically adopted.
English Learning Courses for Refugees
Refugees are systematically paired with volunteer native English speakers who meet once a week via a video or phone call where they discuss current events, read books, articles, and newspapers in English so the refugee can learn how to speak and understand the language.
Since 2013, we have given relief to over 1.4 million refugees. To this day, 29 containers of relief goods were delivered to Syrian refugees in need, and a soup kitchen serving hot meals to up to 4,000 refugees in the border town of Kilis, Turkey. We have also provided the refugees their basic necessities, translators who helped their arrival go smoothly, and pro-bono lawyers to assist with the asylum-seeking process and any legal troubles they might face.
In addition, we have implemented virtual English speaking classes for them to learn how to communicate in a new land. Similarly, Embrace Relief has been working with local and national organizations in the U.S. to help acclimate incoming refugees and assisting families who have recently arrived in the country with guidance and material support.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected people all around the world and is impacting every aspect of life. This time of crisis is not easy for anyone and is especially difficult for refugees in Greece as they cannot practice social distancing or self-quarantining due to overcrowded, unsanitary camps.
Embrace Relief is dedicated to helping those who are in need the most which are why we help refugees find a house, support 60 families with rent payments so they can stay isolated, distributed food to 580 families, provide English classes via video meetings to 60 students and 89 adults, and have pro-bono lawyers who provide refugees and asylum seekers with legal advice.
