Conflict, persecution, poverty and climate change have forced millions of people to flee their homes every year. Positioned on Europe's frontier, Greece has experienced an enormous influx of forcibly displaced people and is under immense pressure to support them. Seven years into this crisis, government funding and other major projects that supported this community previously are in rapid decline, and many have closed down. This has resulted in widespread food insecurity throughout Greece, but particularly in and around Athens where an estimated 50,000 asylum seekers reside. foodKIND's mission remains to provide food with compassion in situations where people do not have access to regular food supplies and where basic human needs are not being met. We do so by providing people of vulnerable communities in Athens with dried and tinned foods and essential hygiene products, through a registered list of beneficiaries, who qualify based on a needs assessment. We try to prioritise those who do not have access to income, to ensure that our limited resources can reach those most in need. We recognise that covering the basic need of food is one of the largest issues this community is facing, and that many adults and children live with food insecurity, which impedes on their everyday lives but also on prospects for their future. foodKIND helps to fill this crucial gap in the response to asylum seekers in Athens ensuring that the people we support are able to feed themselves and their children, whilst also giving them a sense of security, and enabling them to focus their attention and limited money on bettering their circumstances. foodKIND is governed by a firm belief in the human rights enshrined in the UN Charters, particularly that "the right to adequate food is realised when every man, woman and child, alone or in community with others, has physical and economic access at all times to adequate food or means for its procurement". This human right to accessing food is not being upheld in countless family situations in Athens. foodKIND helps to tackle this situation. We operationalise this mission in three main ways: the first is through distributions in our freemarket in Athens, where most of our "customers" come and choose their items themselves. Part of our mission is to provide our programs in a dignified and efficient way - by maintaining the element of choice, people receive items they actually want and we can ensure that funding is used as efficiently as possible. The second aspect of our program is the "mother's packs" program, by which we assemble and distribute nutrient rich food to pregnant and nursing mothers. These packages were designed in collaboration with a midwife and a nutritionist, and support the healthy development of the baby as well as providing extra protein and essential vitamins and minerals to the mother. The final aspect of our program is our outreach program to people living with mobility issues. This includes physical disabilities and mental health issues, as well as mobility restrictions many single parents face, creating an extra obstacle to their access to food. We assemble packages based on individual people's preferences, and deliver these food packages to them at their homes. This allows us to reach the most vulnerable social groups.

Through the intensive contact with four young Syrian women and their 92-year-old grandmother, Raquel became aware of the specific needs of displaced women. Since 2017 SAO has been focusing on the work with particularly vulnerable displaced women and has been operating two on trauma-oriented, psychosocial services specialised Day Centres on Lesvos and in Athens. In the spirit of sustainability, SAO also accompanies the clients with the "Back on Track" programme to promote individual skills useful for their professional or academic paths.

SAO achieves those goals through a professional programme for trauma relief which is offered in a protected space where individuality is appreciated and religious, cultural and ethnical values are acknowledged and respected. In this way, SAO creates conditions to mitigate the effects of fleeing on body and soul, to point out individual possibilities and abilities to act as well as to promote inclusion in the society of arrival. The strengthening and implementation of women's rights and of the legal entitlement to international protection are action guiding.
