Greece Refugee Assistance

Headwaters Relief volunteers and medical team members have supported refugees at a camp in Oinofyta, Greece. The Headwaters team worked at the on-site clinic serving the camp, organizing supplies, establishing an effective system of response to inter-camp health issues while meeting the needs of the camp’s residents. An important part of the effort was aimed at helping the camp deal with psychiatric emergencies and provide therapeutic activities currently not available to camp residents. Team members met with individuals who had been identified as needing possible mental health intervention and support while others engaged children in play therapy. This work provided a backdrop for understanding how Headwaters could be involved moving forward and provide recommendations for a system of ongoing mental health support through a network of international volunteers.
