Open Letter by 62 NGOs: 8.300 Refugees are exposed to Homelessness by the Greek State

Refugees who have received international protection are being forced to leave apartments for vulnerable people in the Emergency Support to Integration & Accommodation program (ESTIA), hotels under the Temporary Shelter and Protection programme (FILOXENIA), Reception and Identification Centres (RICs) and refugee camps.

Almost simultaneously, financial assistance in the form of EU implemented and supported cash cards will stop. These upcoming measures will affect the livelihood of at least 4,800 people who need to leave ESTIA accommodation, 3,500 people who need to leave RICs and hosting facilities, as well as 1,200 refugees who are self-accommodated and receive cash assistance.

This will result in homelessness for thousands of people amidst a global pandemic.

62 organizations addressed a joint statement to the Greek and EU authorities urging them to reconsider.
