We are a strongly committed family sending dignity and hope to every human in need on the island of Lesvos. We Love Lesvos. As the NGO which runs the largest warehouse on the islands for incoming donations, Attika plays a vital role in the distribution of humanitarian aid across Lesvos, Samos, Chios, Kos and Mainland Greece. Most displaced people are wet and cold when they come ashore, often with little personal belonging. They need warm dry clothes and shoes to survive the cold and rainy winters and lightweight clothing and shoes for the hot summer months. Most corporate or private donors who send clothes, shoes, hygiene, tents, baby needs, towels, blankets and other personal items to Greece, ship directly to Attika. The Attika team then sorts, delivers or arranges collection for the other supporting NGOs who in turn distributes directly as part of their own assistance programs. In conjunctions with this bulk distribution, Attika also daily packs and delivers specifically requested items directly to the residents of Moria and Kara Tepe camps through our open Personal Order system.

Meet the Team
One of the cornerstones of Attika Human Support is our great team.
Some of us are ourselves displaced people now living on the island. Wherever we have come from, we bring with us a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Donations come from our friends and we take the responsibility seriously to pick projects that provide impact in improving people’s lives. With your help, we are able to make our monthly donations to Attika Human Support so that Aris Vlahopoulos and team can pay for fuel to distribute donated goods all across Lesvos.

Freya Mergler – Field Manager (Greece), Help Refugees, UK
I first met Attika in autumn of 2015 and was very much impressed by how professionally their team handled the incoming donations and their distribution. We have delivered a lot of donated materials from Germany to Attika and helped in the distribution on the island. Since then I have always stayed in touch, and I have recognized how important Attika is as an independent distribution hub for Lesbos and Chios. In my opinion Attika Human Support is ...
