About Attika

support and hope

In response to the European refugee crisis, which has seen 80,000 people transit through Lesvos, Attika Human Support was established in 2015 operating a SAR team mainly on the North Shore of Lesvos.

As it emerged that clothing, warmth, hygiene and shelter were critical unmet needs of arriving asylum seekers, Attika Warehouse, the central warehouse which plays a vital role in the distribution of humanitarian aid to incoming migrants across the islands, was founded in late 2015.

Access to basic human requirements is defective both for refugees and the NGO’s serving their needs. Attika, the only welcome-everyone distribution point, is an essential part of the support services and value system on Lesvos and beyond serving Asylum Seekers, NGO’s and the Local Community

Our Team

The cornerstone of Attika Human Support is our great team, entirely made up of volunteers. Some of us are ourselves refugees or asylum seekers living on the island. Wherever we have come from, we bring with us a wealth of knowledge and experience.
