The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is a humanitarian, non-governmental and non-profit organization that works in more than 35 countries around the world. DRC has recently established a presence in Greece where aims at delivering immediate assistance and protection-guided emergency response to refugees and migrants in the Greek island of Lesvos based on international humanitarian standards and in line with the Greek government strategy.
The number of persons transiting the Greek Island of Lesvos, in search of safety elsewhere in Europe, has significantly increased since June 2015. As numbers increased to several thousand new arrivals per day, reception facilities and the capacity of primary duty-bearers as well as the humanitarian community in Greece was overstretched. As a consequence, persons awaiting registration before continuing their journey onwards have been exposed to conditions that can be below standard and conducive to an unsecure protection environment, especially for the most vulnerable cases.
With the overall objective of urgently improving the quality of the protection environment and conditions for those persons likely in need of international protection, this project seeks to support primary duty-bearers (Ministry of Migration Policy as the primary actor) to the furthest extent possible through the implementation of small scale construction to improve infrastructure, systematic information dissemination on available services and the registration process to persons of concern in a language they understand, development of site profiles and continuous monitoring of service provision, management of available accommodation facilities to ensure adequate shelter and priority to the most vulnerable, and conducting protection monitoring and support for the development and implementation of an adequate referral system for vulnerable cases.
