As an American living in Europe, I have been involved helping with the refugee crisis since September, 2015. Many families have fled from their home countries. Now over 60,000 people are stuck in Greece waiting for asylum in Europe. The borders are closed, and we, as volunteers are trying to clothe, feed, take care of medical care in addition to help them with day to day living in the camps in Northern Greece.
We are now facing winter and I am raising funds to meet basic needs and requesting supplies for the art we create with the children. People can also purchase paintings, which will be framed and sold for 20€. The complete amount will be given to that child to spend how they like. It’s our way to keep them smiling. I post photos to our Facebook page, when we receive supplies so please “like” us there.
