Samos, Greece
The closure of the Balkan route and the EU deal with Turkey in March 2016 left migrants and refugees stranded in the Greek islands, without access to basic services, adequate shelter or information on their legal status.

During 2016, We shifted our focus from providing lifesaving surgery and medical care to people on the move to addressing the specific needs of those stuck in unsanitary camps.

On Lesbos, for example, we carried out basic healthcare consultations across the island, through our mobile clinics and inside Moria and Kara Tepe registration centres.

We also opened a clinic in Mytilene town centre offering sexual and reproductive healthcare, treatment for chronic diseases and mental health support.
