The Refugee Law Clinic Berlin is launching a new project. Since April 11th, we are sending a team of counsellors to the Greek island of Samos. Refugees stranded in Greek hotspots are to a considerable extend left without any legal advice before they enter the asylum interviews. Our partner organisation RLC-Abroad already established a counselling office on Chios. The RLC-Belrin will now make an effort to improving the situation on Samos. In a pilot phase, the project has already been successfully established. We can confirm that there is considerable demand for legal advice before the asylum interviews and we were able to build up cooperation with the relevant actors on the island. In a next step we will extend the pilot project for six months.
For that we need your help. For people interested in counselling on Samos for a period of at least three weeks, look at the Call for Volunteers. Applications are currently considered for the period from June 1st onwards. To come up for accomodation and a compensation for the counselling coordinator, we also require an amount of 4.500 € for the first six months. Every donation helps us realise the project.
To make donation see here for the account details and enter "Samos" as reference.
Thank you for your support and interest! We will keep you updated as we go.
