There has been a surge in homelessness among refugees and asylum seekers in Athens, Greece due to the recent evictions by both the Greek government and the UNHCR.  It is estimated the Greek government aims to evict 8,000 recognised refugees from camps and accommodations across the country – with little to no plan on how to provide housing once they are evicted.

Our Response

A grant from a donor in New Zealand went directly to a community based organisation in Athens called Finding Refuge that provides housing and emergency and long-term support to refugees and asylum seekers.   The direct grant went to operating costs of Duniya House .  With the funds they were able to welcome in an asylum seeker from Syria who was 9 months pregnant, and just hours after arriving at the house was transported to the hospital, returning to a furnished room for her new baby.   The night before she was sleeping in a tent in the park.   Visit their website for more incredible stories.

Caseload Doubled

ASOGEN, our partner in Guatemala who addresses the needs of women experiencing domestic violence, is tackling double the caseload during COVID. Their caseload has doubled but the staff has not. They are working around the clock to find ways to keep women safe.

Our Response

We have offered ASOGEN an emergency COVID grant to be used in any way they see fit.   The director recently said to us “This type of funding from Move92 is so helpful because we can move it around as needed, and we have to move it around a lot!”.   COVID has made certain costs very high, and difficult to fund, such as transportation.   Busses aren’t running and women need to get to the shelter, and to the courts.  Our flexible grant enables them to pay for things other donors may not in this heightened time of crisis for women experiencing domestic violence.
