Our initiative and goal is simple - to preserve the migration documents of Greek immigrants. With thousands of entry documents of Greek migrants around the world, they are in jeopardy of being destroyed if we do not take action. Our hope is to help the International Organization of Migration to digitize these archives and help preserve our Greek heritage.
