    Global Brigades Greece

    Consistent with our sustainable development model, we started with Medical Brigades in Greece in 2019 to build trust and gather insight to develop a unique holistic model for asylum seekers and refugees aspiring for integration.

    By invitation from the UN International Office of Migration and in partnership with the Greek Ministry of Health, Chapters work alongside local doctors to provide primary health care for asylum seekers and refugees at the many refugee camps just north of Athens.

    Volunteer participation insures refugees have access to medical consults and treatment for acute illnesses. Students work in triage, shadow physicians, provide health education workshops, provide resources for medicine distribution and facilitate art therapy workshops for children.

    Medical referrals are provided to specialists for needs beyond the scope of the brigade.
