"Yalla Help has taken a unique, grassroots approach to the refugee crisis in Greece. With a network of willing and wonderful volunteers working within the camps to instigate change, they have pushed tirelessly to address the needs of refugees as displaced people who crave social, economic and environmental development beyond their immediate plight and circumstance. Yalla Help recognises that the refugee state is not a lifelong condition, and inline with this ethos, they support immediate relief with an emphasis on long-term impact - such as providing educational opportunities and championing individual families as they apply for asylum. Yalla Help is more than just an NGO, it is a movement that understands the cultural, religious and societal needs of the people it serves, and works within the refugee communities to both nurture assimilation and preserve the integrity of these peoples’ identity."
