About ASB

ASB is a non-political and non-denominational charity and relief organisation. We help all people – regardless of their political, ethnic, national and religious affiliation. We provide rapid and direct help to all those in need of our support. Since its foundation in 1888, ASB – its German name means “Workers’ Samaritan Federation” – has provided services that focus on people’s needs, including care for the elderly, rescue services and First Aid, assistance for children and young people, support for people with disabilities and those suffering from mental problems, as well as Foreign Aid and adult and further education.

ASB started its operations in Greece in response to the Refugee crisis which hit this part of Europe during 2016.

The main office for Greece is located in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece. ASB has been actively involved in the provision of humanitarian aid since the beginning of the refugee crisis through the implementation of humanitarian aid projects in Germany, Slovenia, Serbia, FYRoM and decided to expand its activities to Greece upon the outbreak of the crisis in this country. Currently ASB Greece continues its services towards refugees in all sites in Greece with the support of DG Home and in partnership with IOM.
