BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
This October the IRC Greece team will be running alongside the refugees we work with in the Thessaloniki half marathon and 5k runs. Some of us will be running 5k and some the 21k half marathon. Most importantly we will be joined by some of the inspiring refugees IRC's supports through its child protection, women's protection and empowerment and WASH programming in Northern Greece. All funds raise will go to support our crucial work in the refugee and asylum seekers camps in Greece. IRC is currently conducting essential protection and empowerment activities with vulnerable women and children, as well as WASH activities to provide basic facilities (such as running water, toilets and showers) and work to improve the hygiene conditions in the camps.
