IATI Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300228

To deliver humanitarian assistance to vulnerable migrants and refugees stranded in Greece. Activities include the provision of protection services as well as basic services such as food, shelter, healthcare, and water, sanitation and hygiene to vulnerable refugees and migrants. This funding recognises that the situation on the ground has changed, with the majority of refugees and migrants in need now stranded in Greece, and that the humanitarian response must adapt accordingly. The funding is therefore not a continuation of previous UK funding for the NGO Network, but rather additional funding to fill the gaps in the current humanitarian response. The activities funded must therefore be used to fill critical humanitarian gaps or to prepare for a future scaling up of activities through ECHO. This project was approved before the referendum on the UK’s membership of the EU. Work is now under way to understand the implications of leaving the EU for the UK’s development work.
