AMURTEL Greece is responding to the refugee crisis by providing antenatal and postnatal care, programs for infant and young child feeding, and safe spaces for mothers and babies to gather.
Our teams have been present in the camps in Athens since September 2015. We are currently based at the port of Pireaus, as well as making periodic visits to other camps and shelters in the wider Athens area.
AMURTEL is an international, grassroots organization managed by women. In Greece, they are committed to assisting refugee mothers and babies to have the best possible perinatal care, despite the challenging lives they face.
Our local and international volunteers are midwives, doulas, breastfeeding specialists, concerned mothers and pro-active women. Woman-to-woman care is the hallmark of the support given by AMURTEL’s trained volunteers.
