Support of more than 2'000 refugee children

In 2020, nearly 16,000 refugees and migrants arrived in Greece by land and sea.

Of those, more than a third were children. On the Island of Lesbos, SOS Children's Villages Greece supported some 2,250 children in the Kara Tepe refugee camp last year.

In our child-friendly space, the SOS team provided:
• a kindergarten for small children
• classes in Greek and English, math and science
• special education for children with autism and learning difficulties
• recreational and sports activities

To learn, play and stay safe, children at the KareTepe space received school supplies, toys, masks and healthy snacks.
