About

Filoxenia International (FXI) is a Greek-registered nonprofit organisation founded in August 2016.

We offer dignified, independent, safe, and legal accommodation and improves the quality of life for refugees waiting for relocation or reunification elsewhere in Europe.

The project consists of 17 apartments in Thessaloniki, Greece. Each 2-bedroom furnished apartment has one bathroom, living room, kitchen, balcony, and washing machine. An elevator and one wheelchair-accessible apartment is available for families with disabilities.

Since September 2016, Filoxenia International provided 17 apartments for 115 people at an average cost of €6.37 per day.

The voices of refugees need to be heard, and the situation people face in Europe needs to be known and challenged. Here you can find relevant news stories, personal accounts, and learn more about some of the families we seek to support.

Are We There Yet This podcast highlights some of the experiences of both refugees living in camps in Greece, and those who are volunteering to support. Though the footage is not from the industrial camps in Thessaloniki, it certainly highlights some of the challenges people are facing living long term in camps.
