We are pleased to bring you an update from our refugee ministry, which has brought stories of great encouragement these last few months, despite inevitable restrictions due to Covid-19.

On Monday, 23rd of July 2018, a deadly fire started in an area a little outside of Athens. At least 99 people died from the fire and many more were injured. In this great tragedy, I saw something positive. I saw churches responding!
OM is partnering with a local organisation, Community House Damaris, that provides long-term recovery programs to guide women who were exploited or trafficked, into full rehabilitation and re-integration into society.
