Who is Team Kitrinos?
We are a growing group of medical and nonmedical volunteers set up under the direction of Dr Siyana Shaffi, a general medical practitioner who started working in Greek refugee camps in October 2015 on the island of Lesvos.
Our operation began in Camp Moria, Lesvos, but when the number of migrants coming to Lesvos decreased, we moved our services to camps across Northern Greece. However, the need in Moria has since drastically increased, and we have again moved to Moria, where more than 14,000 people are currently trapped.
We have a fully equipped clinical room on-site and access to a portable ultrasound machine and ECG. We offer a range of services, from triage & referral to wound care and chronic disease management. We also have trained volunteers who offer 'Trauma Tapping Technique' therapy to our patients, with the aim of improving mental health and reducing stress in the camp.
Take a look at our Reviews and Reports to learn more about our work.

The Ground Team
Our two ground coordinators manage our operations in Greece.
We are a team made up of volunteer doctors, nurses, paramedics and other allied health professionals from all over the world. We work with translators and non-clinical staff with the aim of providing medical care to refugees affected by the migrant crisis.
At any one time, we have around 6 doctors, 3 nurses and 10 translators working in the clinic.
Team Kitrinos is always on the lookout for volunteers, both clinical and non-clinical, so please get in touch if you are interested.
The UK Team
We have a small group of Admin staff in the UK who are involved in volunteer coordination and communications to support our ground team and assist with the running of our services in the camp.
