GCR is an association recognized as a special charity, is included in the Registers of competent Ministries and is an operative partner of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). On a daily basis, GCR welcomes and offers free legal and social advice and services to refugees and people coming from third countries who are entitled to international protection in our country, while special emphasis is put on vulnerable cases, such as unaccompanied minors, victims of trafficking etc. The ultimate goal is their protection and their smooth integration in our country. GCR’s services are offered in Athens, Thessaloniki and in the region of Evros but also in every entry point in Greece, such as the Aegean islands, where people in need of international protection enter in great numbers.
