ALL funds raised on this page will be sent to RLS Athens.[/p][p]Refugee Legal Support Athens is a voluntary organisation run by London based experienced lawyers practising in EU asylum and international protection law. It was set up in 2017 as a response to the lack of action by European governments to observe and honour the rights of refugees arriving on the shores of Greece.[/p][p]Since April 2017 more than 75 London lawyers have taken turns in Athens and provided much needed free professional advice to 1600 refugees by operating a pro-bono clinic in the city. They fund their own travel and are not paid for their work. But funds are needed for the day to day running of the local operation and the coordination of over 500 open cases .
