Homelessness has increased rapidly in Europe and Greece over the past few years. For one more year, Médecins du Monde responded to the need of hundreds of our fellow humans for safe accommodation and continued to operate the homeless shelter, using the Organization’s resources exclusively.

The shelter operates during the night and offers accommodation to people living on the streets. At the same time, and despite the difficulties faced, the Organization was able to provide personal care and hygiene services, psychosocial support and referral to housing, food, psychological support, legal assistance, counselling, healthcare, welfare and social rehabilitation services.
