  • Olivia Blythe
    Coordinator for The Athena Centre for Women

    ​Olivia Blythe has been working at The Athena Centre for Women in Chios, Greece, the first all-female refugee facility established to respond to the refugee crisis in Greece. “I am one of the Centre’s coordinators as the main point of contact for the Centre’s clients; women and children refugees from Syria, Iraq, Morocco, Algeria, Cameroon, Congo and Afghanistan. I am also in charge of case management for the women and giving them referrals to other organizations on the island. Most of the refugees have experienced domestic violence or intimate partner violence, so getting them in contact with organizations that can provide counseling or organizations that can assist with relocating the women to a safe space has been my biggest focus.”
