Humanitarian situation in Greece

Some 18,000 migrants have crossed from Turkey into the Aegean islands since the beginning of 2017. Οne in three people arriving in Greece is from Syria, followed by Iraqis and Afghans. The ICRC has also observed an increase in people arriving from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Despite a decrease in the number of shipwrecks, we estimate that more than 1,000 migrants who died remain unidentified in Greece. This leaves their families without closure about their loved ones' fates.

This year, 13,500 people arrived in Greece by sea and land. While living conditions for asylum-seekers have generally improved in the mainland, serious gaps remain in the overcrowded RICs of the islands where some people must remain for their asylum decisions. The poor conditions increase protection risks, including sexual and gender-based violence and lead incidents of tension and violence and contribute to tension. Children and the vulnerable are particularly affected.

NRC in 2016: our year in review

We assisted millions in 2016. It wasn’t easy.

The numbers were bleak. Nearly 66 million people were on the move, fleeing conflict and disaster. But we persevered.

In 2016, displacement figures topped the charts yet again. As the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) scaled up, our 2016 annual report details, we supported more than six million people throughout the year – improving 2015 achievements by nearly 27 per cent.
