Stichting Bootvluchteling offers emergency aim to boat refugees landing in Greece. They are active in Athens, Kos, Leros and Lesbos. They have set up several collaboration, amongst other with the Greek coastguard, UNHCR and Doctors without Borders, to provide assistance and aid to refugees. Part of their activities contribute towards guiding a more safe and more organised arrival in Greece. They also provide medical care to refugees once they arrive in one of the islands.
