Refugee Aid With Lighthouse Relief

(Published May 8, 2017) At a refugee camp in northern Greece, Syrian and Afghan women laugh and trade advice over a homemade meal while their small children play. The weekly event is coordinated by Lighthouse Relief, which runs programs for women and girls at several Greek camps. At the NGO’s Mother and Baby Area, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers receive supplemental nutrition and health advice, but they also come to enjoy the strong community ties that develop as they cook, eat, and share their experiences.
