Dorcas started responding to this crisis in September 2015 in Macedonia. In the six months that followed, Dorcas helped meet the basic needs of approximately 150,000 refugees. Dorcas distributed items include food, hygiene items and blankets.

At the moment Dorcas is starting a new project in Greece to provide safe houses for the most vulnerable migrants and refugees. Dorcas Albania is also getting ready for refugees. The Balkan route is still closed and it is expected that refugees will start to travel through Albania.
