Refugee families who move to a new country have a series of needs that have an impact on their well-being and adaptation process in the new community. Their main needs are easy accessibility to health services, access to education where appropriate, improvement of their socioeconomic position, access to their own social networks as well as those of the new community along with enabling of the acculturation processes. These needs are interrelated and interact with each other. A factor that impacts on these needs is the financial status of the individual as well as the economic state of the new country. This chapter initially discusses the global financial crisis as an economic factor that has an effect on refugees’ living conditions and subsequently considers the needs refugees have, and obstacles that they face in a new country.
