Moved by the stories of people crossing multiple borders seeking refuge, we began exploring holistic responses that embrace human dignity, generosity, and kindness. From this inquiry, the Global Whole Being Fund was established in 2016. Partnering with courageous and compassionate local, national, and international organizations, initiatives and networks, the Fund focuses on supporting the holistic wellbeing of people on the move and their host communities, nourishing dignity and self-determination. Filling gaps too often found within the conventional refugee response system across the globe, the Fund aims to meet both tangible and intangible needs using a variety of innovative strategies, always with a heart-centered approach. To date, we have placed a particularly strong emphasis on supporting emerging and local organizations across the Greek mainland and islands.
