Corinn's Refugee Service in Greece

Organized by: Corinn Slater

THE STORY:

According to the UN around 250,000 people have been killed and 13.5 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance inside Syria.* More than 50% of Syria’s population is currently displaced.* One-in-every-two of those crossing the Mediterranean this year – half a million people – were Syrians escaping the conflict in their country.* These numbers are staggering and I feel that I can no longer sit and watch what is happening during this refugee crisis without taking some action. I have been assisting NPI-Nurture Project International (a US-based, non-profit organization that works to protect safe infant feeding among families impacted by crisis and disaster), with administrative needs and social media, but I want to do more. I will be volunteering at a refugee camp in Greece to assist families from Syria and Turkey who need assistance; and promote awareness of the issues at hand. I feel my time there can better provide me with an understanding of what happens in these camps on a daily basis so I can share with the world what can be done to help. I'm asking for donations to help pay for the cost of transportation and accommodations to Greece from Abu Dhabi, if I have any extra funds left after expenses, it will all go towards supplies and food needed for the refugee families in Greece. I have set my goal low in order to just cover basic costs but I would love to raise 3-4X more so we can donate to this great non-profit. Every little bit helps so please contribute what you can.
