Supporting children and their families living in the open camps is one of PHILOS’ main goals and a key priority for its executives.
For this purpose, HCDCP in cooperation with NGO ARSIS and SOS Children’s Villages Greece, proceeded to the creation of a joint child protection team which will be activated in the open camp of Diavata, Salonica.
The three entities have also drawn up a project charter describing the necessity of setting up the team, its modus operandi and areas of activity.
Furthermore, a common form of recording on daily basis of all incidents was created and weekly meetings were agreed to take place in order to discuss and resolve complex issues related to child protection.
The team is led by Stefania Moisidou, HCDCP’s field coordinator at the open camp of Diavata, which has already begun to make contacts for the better management of the problems encountered by the children living in the open camps
