Our work is guided by seven fundamental principles (humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality) and by Strategy 2020, which voices our collective vision and determination to move forward in tackling the major challenges that confront humanity in the present decade. We act before, during and after disasters and health emergencies to meet the needs and improve the lives of vulnerable people.
The operation in Greece has followed three different phases. During the first phase from 2015 into early 2016 when migrants were transient, operation was focusing on providing short term emergency assistance to high number of migrants on their route to other European countries.
After the closure of the boarders and the EU-Turkey agreement in March 2016, the average number of daily arrivals decreased significantly, but migrants in Greece found themselves stranded, needing their basic needs including shelter, food, basic items for daily living, health care to be met. The Government of Greece quickly set up sites to host the stranded migrants and with the support of different organizations, including the Hellenic Red Cross (HRC), IFRC and partner national societies started providing services in these sites. During this phase of operation, there was a need to provide services and assistance to people who were stranded in Greece for an undefined period of time, leading to protracted humanitarian action.
The third phase of the operation is characterized by providing support to Greek authorities and the HRC to respond to the current protracted migration situation in a more sustainable manner. In addition to the continuation of providing support to migrants in the sites that the Greek government has set, the operation will transition to urban programming and social inclusion through building on the HRC existing capacities and programming.
