Tent to Home is a response to the horrific conditions in Greece refugees face with inadequate shelter. Having risked their lives by land and sea fleeing war and persecution, now stuck in camps while completely uncertain of their destiny, as of October, 2016, over 60,000 asylum seekers are stranded.
The Greek Center for Disease Control visited sixteen camps in July and found that conditions failed to meet the minimum international standards, noting “sub-par sanitation, lack of access to clean water, poor ventilation, overcrowding, exposure to health hazards and toxins including asbestos” leading to their recommendation to close all camps and integrate refugees into society.
