Mission Statement

We are a grassroots organisation providing humanitarian aid and assistance to refugees across Europe. We believe that Europe is not facing a refugee crisis but a crisis of solidarity and shared values. For us, the answer is taking humanitarian action - based in civil society and beyond national borders. We stand for a Europe that lives up to its own standards and puts human rights and dignity first.

Description

IHA was founded in September 2015 as a platform to coordinate volunteer efforts responding to humanitarian emergencies across the Balkan route. IHA has since developed into a volunteer-based organisation with a focus on Northern Greece, where it has a continuous presence since early 2016.

Our warehouse in Northern Greece supports thousands of refugees in the region with essential relief supplies. Making aid about human dignity, through choice-based distributions and community & skills building. We’re able to quickly respond to changing needs and to support people that fall through the cracks of the official aid system. We’re funded exclusively by donations and grassroots grants.

Our community center in Lagadikia is a space for learning, community building and cultural exchange.

We’re part of a Europe-wide grassroots network, connecting people willing to help with actors working to defend refugee's rights in Greece.
