Lighthouse Relief was established in autumn 2015. At this time, the operational context in Greece was characterised by thousands of refugees crossing the Aegean Sea and landing on Lesvos island every day. Lighthouse Relief’s operational focus was to provide emergency assistance to those arriving from Turkey. Over the past three years the activities of Lighthouse Relief have evolved. Since 2016, they have been starting assisting vulnerable groups such as children and youth in the refugee camp of Ritsona, located approximately 70 kilometres from Athens.
