"If the rescue boats hadn't found us, we all would have drowned," recalls Mohammed Omadi.
Mohammed and his family, from Afghanistan, came face-to-face with death when forced to cross the sea to Greece to seek refuge in a safe country. Their cash, passports and luggage disappeared in the waves.
Cash relief provides emergency financial assistance for families like the Omadis that have lost everything. It's an efficient and effective way of getting support to those who need it most in times of crisis.
