Project Updates

Project update- 28 February 2018

We have so far welcomed 109 volunteers from 17 different countries (Greece, France, Belgium, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Iceland, Lithuania, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland, Poland and the United Kingdom). All the project’s volunteer lawyers are practising and experienced European asylum lawyers.

The team includes up to six volunteer asylum lawyers, a legally-trained project coordinator, two Greek asylum lawyers (one as as legal coordinator), two legal assistants and full-time Arabic and Farsi interpreters. We always ensure we have at least one French speaking lawyer, as French is the third most widely spoken language in Moria.

In total, we have provided assistance to over 2,780 cases so far, over 2,220 of which have received first instance interview advice from our volunteer lawyers.  In total, we have assisted over 4,500 people. All consultations are provided in our offices in Moria, to ensure privacy and confidentiality are preserved. We also operate in the PROKEKA detention area within Moria.

In total, our volunteers have contributed over 22,100 hours of voluntary work.

We have advised individuals from 56 different countries. Primarily, this has included Syrians, Afghans, Iraqis, Iranians, Eritreans and people from West Africa. However, we have also advised others, including Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Yemenis, Ethiopians and North Africans.
