February 10, 2023

ATHENS – Greece is opening up a humanitarian corridor to support the earthquake-stricken areas of Türkiye and Syria, Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Andreas Katsaniotis said on Thursday, after being assigned the role of coordinating the collection of aid by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, the ministry announced on Thursday.

Katsaniotis said in a tweet that he and the ministry staff “will relay the aid and convey the support of Greek people to our fellow human beings, who are suffering.”

In an announcement on Katsaniotis’ assignment, the Foreign Affairs ministry said the aid relates primarily to clothing (adults, children, and infants), beds and blankets, pharmaceuticals, tents and long-shelf-life foods. The full catalogue of requested aid is available through https://hellenicaid.mfa.gr/, while more information can be requested by email ([email protected]) or by calling 210-368-4035 and 210-368-4407.

The ministry also said that by order of Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikos Dendias, the ministry’s Crisis Management Unit has been activated for any assistance to Greek citizens present in Türkiye and Syria. More information is available by email ([email protected], [email protected]) or by calling 210-368-1730 and 210-368-1350.


Despite being unable to prevent smugglers in Turkey from sending refugees and migrants to Greek islands and the northern land border along the Evros River, Greece has made significant progress in dealing with human trafficking, according to a report by the Council of Europe's Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).
