©2018 by FENIX. Created with Wix.com

FENIX brings together international experts from around the world, combining experience in international law, criminal law, history, human and women's rights and field work in refugee camps worldwide, to create an outstanding team of volunteers.

 

We look for highly trained, dedicated & passionate individuals that want to effect change on the ground.

 

Our teams are composed of translators, lawyers, psychologists and community ambassadors, all of which are essential to provide effective legal aid, help refugees navigate the complicated and difficult asylum process and document the human rights abuses committed against those fleeing violence in their countries.

Our work combats the entrapment of displaced people in the Greek islands and is the first step towards building a new life in Europe.
