Every minute, 20 people leave everything behind to escape war, persecution, or terror. Over 70 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced – they are either refugee, internally displaced people (IDPs), asylum seekers, stateless people, or returnees. That means, 1 in 113 people on earth is fitting into one of these categories. Among them are nearly 30 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18.
Wars, conflicts, religious or political persecution, and human rights violations force people to flee their homes and communities to start a new life free of persecution and fear. Often starting a new life with nothing but the clothes on their backs, these refugees struggle to receive even basic human rights.

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.
Through the Refugee Relief program, thousands of refugees have been helped during their toughest times, and Embrace Relief is still here to help them through this time of incredible uncertainty.
