The protection team supports the most vulnerable people in camp. Fenix assesses their situation and refers and advocates for them to receive the services they need, such as medical attention or mental health support. There is a significant ‘protection gap’ for asylum seekers on Lesvos and beyond - in other words, access to basic services such as medical care, mental health support, adequate accommodation, and education is not ensured. Without protection teams, basic rights are not upheld, and vulnerabilities not recognised or responded to, leading to increased risk of further harm. By choosing this package, you’re helping to reduce this gap by enabling our team to support asylum seekers in attending medical appointments, accessing safer accommodation, and receiving official documentation of vulnerabilities to support their asylum claims.
