In the past two years, tens of thousands of refugees flooded into Europe. Now, the European Union, in agreement with Turkey, has established a number of measures to curb the flow of refugees through Greece into Western Europe. This has resulted in a large reduction in the number of refugees arriving daily, but has also stranded approximately 50,000 refugees across Greece.

How can you help?


One Week Trips

Join us for one week, either as an individual or bring a team from your church.

Short-term team opportunities are available for groups or individuals. Team members will serve at various refugee camps and/or ministry centers in Greece. Daily activities can include:

  • Helping with food & clothing distribution or organization in warehouses
  • Organizing children’s programs
  • Assisting with physical, social, and spiritual needs
  • Offering words of hope and prayers of comfort
  • Connecting with a few people or a family for a longer term long-distance friendship

Experience a paradigm shift in your understanding of the refugee situation by partnering with Greek volunteers as they serve the people that have been flooding into their country. See the holding pattern that refugees live in before they are resettled in the U.S. or Europe.

Cost per trip is approximately $1800-$2200 (depending on trip location and activities) + round-trip airfare to Greece. 

Please contact Lisa Harris for detailed information. 615-832-2282 or lharris@servantgroup.org.
