Better Days joins 15 civil society organisations in calling on Greek authorities to ensure that people in need of international protection residing at the Lesvos Closed Controlled Access Centre (CCAC) have access to basic necessities, like food, medical care, and mental health and psychosocial support.

Everyone, no matter their legal status, has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of themself and their family, including access to food, medical care and necessary social services, as enshrined in Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). However, 75 years after the adoption of the UDHR, the human rights of asylum seekers and beneficiaries of
international protection are systematically violated in Greece.

We, 16 non-governmental organisations active in the protection of people on the move in Greece, express our greatest concerns for the systematic violations of the rights of people seeking international protection.
