What we do: Training and direct service

CHEERing offers training on Infant Feeding in Emergencies to organizations working with refugees in Greece. CHEERing also provides ongoing direct service to refugees at several refugee camps in the Attika region, in collaboration with other non-profit organizations, and intensive support at the Elna Maternity Center in central Athens. Each week we weigh, measure, and track growth in babies, and offer support to mothers of young infants. We also provide sessions for refugee women about breastfeeding, sexual health, nutrition, and infant development. Our goal is to increase breastfeeding rates and awareness of the importance of breastfeeding in emergency situations.
