Attika Human Support is an essential part of the Lesvos team that helps desperate people fleeing war, torture, and terror. As the NGO that runs the island’s biggest warehouse for donated goods for asylum seekers, Attika plays a vital role in the distribution of humanitarian aid on Lesvos.
Most asylum seekers are wet and cold when they arrive, usually with just the clothes on their backs. They need warm dry clothes and shoes to survive the cold and rainy winters, as well as lightweight clothing and shoes for the hot summers.
Most international donors who send clothes, shoes, tents, baby carriers, towels, toiletries, and other personal items to Lesvos, ship directly to Attika. The Attika team then sorts and delivers consignments to dozens of local NGOs who then make distributions to asylum seekers as part of their own assistance programs. Attika also has a system for packaging and delivering specific items that asylum seekers request via WhatsApp, and is the only warehouse open to everyone.
We are a strongly committed family sending DIGNITY and HOPE to every human in need on the island of Lesvos
Meet the Team
The cornerstone of Attika Human Support is our great team, entirely made up of volunteers.
Some of us are ourselves displaced people now living on the island. Wherever we have come from, we bring with us a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Donations come from our friends and we take the responsibility seriously to pick projects that provide impact in improving people’s lives. With your help, we are able to make our monthly donations to Attika Human Support so that Aris Vlahopoulos and team can pay for fuel to distribute donated goods all across Lesvos.

I first met Attika in autumn of 2015 and was very much impressed by how professionally their team handled the incoming donations and their distribution. We have delivered a lot of donated materials from Germany to Attika and helped in the distribution on the island. Since then I have always stayed in touch, and I have recognized how important Attika is as an independent distribution hub for Lesbos and Chios. In my opinion Attika Human Support is ...
