Macedonia

Number of people served: 7,186 

Because of its location on the border between Greece and the rest of Europe, hundreds of thousands of refugees, mostly from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq, traveled through Macedonia in 2015 and 2016. The borders closed in 2016, and the situation has since stabilised, but some refugees still remain and seek asylum in the country.

Our work in Macedonia

JRS Macedonia serves and shelters the most vulnerable migrants – people with injuries, pregnant women, babies, and unaccompanied children. JRS Macedonia services include a Safe House for refugees, home visits, psychosocial services, and support to detained migrants.
