AbbVie Foundation supports International Medical Corps respond to refugee crisis in Greece

International Medical Corps, a global health care nonprofit, has been on the ground since the beginning of the refugee crisis in Greece, assisted by a grant from the AbbVie Foundation. 

They offer more than medical, psychological and hygiene services: In a situation that can seem utterly hopeless, International Medical Corps offers hope.

“The work that International Medical Corps is doing to respond to the refugee crisis is nothing less than heroic. Their interactions with the families in the camps are so meaningful – the refugees know who they are, they know they can trust them and receive support from them,” says Melissa Walsh, vice president, AbbVie Foundation, who traveled to Skaramagas in August 2016 to witness the impact of International Medical Corps’ efforts."

“People are literally stuck in these camps and there is little clarity around how long they will be there. This is a true humanitarian crisis and the international community must keep focus on the thousands of people who need our help,” Walsh says. “That’s definitely something I took back with me and continue to share with anybody who will listen.”
