A non-profit organisation providing high quality pro-bono legal aid
to displaced persons in and around the area of Thessaloniki, Greece.

If you need legal aid for yourself and your family and you are in Greece, click here.

Our team of trained lawyers and interpreters is working relentlessly to assist asylum seekers and migrants in the course of their asylum procedure.

We believe that every individual should be able to take well-informed decisions during their asylum process. This means the right to legal assistance and the right to accurate and up to date information regardless of their social positioning.

'During the examination of the asylum request, the applicants shall be provided with legal and procedural information free of charge relating to their case.'

Article 71 of Greek Law 4636/2019
