SAVE - OUTREACH - ASSIST
We are on Lesvos Island, working and cooperating if needed with other organizations to prevent drownings of refugees in the Mediterranean.

We care for the future of young women, who had to interrupt their studies because of war. Therefore we are creating our «Back on Track» program.

We support and empower women refugees on Lesvos and in Athens by supplying core necessities and  take care of the most vulnerable among them.

BASHIRA CENTRE
The Greek islands host thousands of people meant to be there only temporarily. Refugees who arrived in Greece after the 20th March 2016 (beginning of the implementation of the EU-Turkey deal) have little prospect of being admitted to another European country and are trapped. Planning and organization for the improvement of infrastructure and security is poor while integration opportunities are non-existent.

The feeling of entrapment and the threat of deportation to Turkey intensifies the burdens that refugees have already been suffering by war and the life-threatening journey that made them refugees. 

SAO Association supports displaced women after their arrival in Europe by helping them to take their fate back into their own hands. Since August 2017, we have been running «Bashira», which is a Community- and Empowerment-Center for displaced women with or without children on Lesvos (Mytilene).

About us

Matching needs and offers.

Asterias-Starfish Foundation being on the refugees' crisis field for a long time, came face to face with emergency needs, lack of information and communication. Even now, when the flow is not so big, actually nobody knows the needs of the others. So many times, items are remaining in warehouses and refugees still need them. On the other hand, donors want to offer their help in this refugee crisis, but they cannot find where to channel this help.

We are launching this platform to help us to work more efficiently.  To let every organization have a clear view of the needs on the island of Lesvos. To give them access to funding when they haven't any, and give to the donors the full information they need, when they want to offer their help.

Let's work together, to cover the needs of this humanitarian crisis, through a transparent platform.
