Cash assistance in Greece: "The modern CARE package"
Description: Instead of distributing packages of food or household items, CARE has been providing refugees in Greece with debit cash cards. Cash is one of the most effective methods to assist people in need. Refugees can restore control over their life and decide for themselves what they need most. Especially, when refugees find themselves in big cities, a debit cash card, the modern CARE package, empowers further their efforts to re-gain their dignity. Asylum seekers registered with the national authorities in Greece have the right to work, but in practice both registered and non-registered refugees face enormous difficulties finding a job. As a result of the economic crisis in Greece and high unemployment level, refugees are facing additional barriers for example in relation to language. As a direct result, people continue to rely on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs. Deeba and her sixteen-year-old son, Haroon are among the approximate 13,000 refugees and asylum seekers who currently live in Athens, the capital of Greece. When the situation in Afghanistan became too dangerous, they fled through Pakistan to Iran and then to Turkey, before crossing the border into Greece. Since the borders have been closed, they have remained in Greece, still unsure of what’s next. Life in Athens was difficult and Deeba found herself in a very insecure situation but after CARE has offered them accommodation and enroll into the cash program, they managed to stand up on their feet again. CARE’s cash assistance program in Greece, from January to August 2017, reached more than 3,200 refugees and asylum seekers. They were all supported to meet their basic needs, while simultaneously helping the Greek local economy, which has been devastated by the recent economic crisis. The project was supported by UNHCR and funded by ECHO.
