Since 2010, ICMC has collaborated with UNHCR in Greece by deploying highly qualified experts to different locations to provide support to UNCHR and assist local Greek authorities with the consolidation and advancement of the reform of the national asylum system. ICMC's experts provide information to newly arrived people on their rights and obligations and distribute essential non-food items in selected border locations.
Protection and prevention
Asylum seekers, refugees, persons fleeing conflicts, and other persons displaced from their homes face considerable risks which can be exacerbated by a range of personal circumstances and obstacles to accessing basic services, including poverty, isolation, irregular migration status, and social and cultural norms.
ICMC seeks to identify and address the underlying causes of vulnerability of displaced people, and to provide emergency and long-term protection to those in need. Persons of greatest concern to ICMC include vulnerable families, unaccompanied children, at-risk women and female-headed households, persons with serious illnesses or disabilities, the elderly, and persons fleeing ethnic, religious or other persecution.
