Greece Debt Crisis

An emergency response program

THE SITUATION IN BRIEF

What You Need to Know

Greek society is facing a major economic crisis that was triggered by the global financial crisis of 2008 and made worse by reforms that have increased taxes and cut social services. Now at around 25 percent, the unemployment rate in Greece—the highest in all of Europe—has left jobless parents unable to provide basic necessities to their children.

How the Drought Impacts Children

The food and water crisis is crippling families and making it near impossible for parents to adequately care for their children. As a result, children face a significant risk of being orphaned, abandoned or otherwise losing their parental care.
