What to Expect

60% of refugees live in urban areas. The systems needed in urban settings is different from those in refugee camps. Distribution of food isn't provided. Education, health care, and other systems of support are not easily accessible nor is it very clear where to find these services. You'll be working with dynamic organizations tackling these issues.

Greece has incredible history and culture. You'll get to taste a range of traditional food from both Greece and the Middle East. Included in your trip are pilgramages to Mars Hill and Philippi. You'll also take in the spectacular Acropolis.
