Action from Switzerland is a Zürich registered non-profit organisation that aims to provide effective and coordinated protection to vulnerable refugees across Europe. We are currently based on the island of Chios, Greece, and our main project on the island is the Athena Centre for Women. Our Centre was opened on 20th July 2016 and accessible to the female refugee population of the island, aged 12 years and above. This is the first female only hub in Greece where specific needs of the female refugee population can be addressed away from the camps. We also work in case management and general protection of the vulnerable groups, women and girls on the island.
