Greece fell into the role of being a rescue country for refugees as people started washing up on their shores after perilous journeys across waters to escape immediate danger at home. Overwhelming numbers of people continue to deplete resources that Greece doesn't have. The Greeks are reacting with grace, but need more hands, and people to come along side them and show them how the unconditional love of Christ acts as they start to become weary.
Refugees keep arriving in this fragile country, seeking grace and understanding as they continue their journey to find a new home. Displaced, tired, and traumatized, they just want to feel safe and cared for. If you have a heart for the refugees escaping to Europe, come be a part of GEM's effort to help them survive and share the Lord's love for them. Show both Greeks and refugees that they are not alone.
GEM has chosen Athens, Greece as our first "gateway city" to serve in. With missionaries already working, and teams growing in Athens, the foundations are laid and more hands are needed. Inquire today about how you can help care for refugees in Greece.
