Impact of COVID-19 on refugees in Greece

Everyday experiences are being lost behind the statistics about the COVID-19 pandemic. This is especially true for those already marginalised, such as displaced men, women, and children. At Refugee Trauma Initiative (RTI), we spent time listening to the communities we work with to hear what life has been like during the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictive measures.

This report sheds a light on the impact of COVID-19 on displaced people living in Greece - particularly the additional strains on their mental health and overall wellbeing. It features stories and reflections from refugees and NGO workers, and includes recommendations for relevant authorities, donors, and NGOs. We look forward to collaborating to help realise these recommendations.
