We aim to improve the livelihoods and outcomes for refugees by prioritising dignity and co-operation. We put dignity first and act quickly to improve refugees’ health, wellbeing and opportunities. And by spending locally, we also support Greece.
Over the last year, about 450 unpaid volunteers from all over the world have travelled at their own expense to support the refugees in Alexandreia, Filippiada, Kyllini and Katsikas.
We rely on private donations and do not receive any money from the European Union, Governments or the UN.
Our volunteers provide food and clothing for free to camp residents in well-presented 'shops'. Our distribution model for free shops and clothes boutiques is seen as best practice and being replicated by other NGOs. And we also create other essential services like playgrounds, classrooms, kitchens and community centres.
This will give you an overview of our activities now after one year: http://www.refugeesupport.eu/our-first-birthday-thank-you-for-your-support/
