Support for Ukrainian refugee families, in Greece.
Currently Greece is home to over 30,000 refugees who have fled their homes in Ukraine during the conflict… and almost all are vulnerable families consisting of women, children, and the elderly. Most are experiencing trauma, loss, family separation, and the economic stress of relocating to a strange country. Since men aged 18-60 must stay in Ukraine to defend the country, most of the families arriving are single mothers with children, all living in a state of uncertainty. Children in this situation are considered economic orphans and those whose fathers do not return will remain so permanently.
ONETrack International is a registered charity with the Greek state established to work with previous refugee populations, and we have now been raising funds to support our partners in assisting those affected by the Ukrainian refugee crisis. Funds will be used to provide accommodations for mothers and children, provisions of food and school needs and the psychosocial support required from trauma experienced during the invasion. Our goal is to keep families together, keep children out of institutional care, and contribute to their education and health needs. Families have been placed in guesthouses and support goes toward shelter, food security, education, and things of that nature. This is an emergency response and so we will continue to fundraise for this cause while the need is still there.
