The economic crisis in Greece and the influx of refugees to the Greek shores are a constant source of media attention. While the Greek state is bankrupt, there are no public funds available for asylum services. At the same time, the crisis pushes more and more Greeks below the poverty line. This situation is also affecting the tourism in Greece, one of the main economic sectors in the country. Cordaid’s sister organization Caritas Hellas has initiated an emergency aid program to support the refugees as well as Greek families severely affected by the economic crisis.
