Since the beginning of 2020, Synyparxis operates 5 accommodation shelters for unaccompanied minor refugees throughout Greece, funded initially by Asylum Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and since February 2022 from the Sectoral Development Programme of the Ministry of Immigration and Asylum.
At our shelters are accommodated about 200 children aged 6 to 17 years, the number of which in the near future will increase with the operation of new accommodation structures.
Apart from housing and meeting of their daily needs, around 125 experienced professionals of various specialties, provide their specialized services so that the children can have access to -valuable- psychosocial and legal support and medical care, developing educational and social foundations and being given opportunities that will allow them to fulfill their dreams in the future.
In this context, the services provided in our shelters, in addition to housing, include:
- Coverage of basic living needs (feeding, cleanliness, security).
- Psychosocial support.
- Legal advice.
- Medical and nursing support.
- Mediation services
- Learning Greek / English and other subjects / supplementary teaching.
- Creative work.
- Organization of intercultural activities.
