Acknowledging the increased needs of asylum seekers and appreciating the long-standing experience and work of our Organization, the Swiss Embassy through Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC has facilitated a funding agreement in order for our organization to continue providing legal and psycho-social assistance to seekers of international protection, focusing on vulnerable cases of family reunion claims under the Dublin III regulation.
We are pleased to announce that the organization “Bread for the World” has agreed to expand funding for the implementation of the project “Rebuild our Lives” for the next three years (1/1/2021-31/12-2023).
This agreement comes as an acknowledgement of the long-standing work of the Church of Greece -through our Organization- in the field of providing legal and psychosocial support to international protection seekers with emphasis on extremely vulnerable cases and unaccompanied minors.
The continuation of the program, which has been funded by BftW for the last two years contributes decisively to our multifaceted work on supporting our vulnerable fellow human beings who are looking for a better future in Europe.
