No Place Like Home
Organized by: No Place Like Home
This project began when three friends decided to go to Lesvos, Greece, to learn more about the people fleeing war, and to lend a hand. We returned with a resolve not to forget, and to continue to support the volunteer organization who so kindly let us stop in to help.
As of this entry, there are as many as 50,000 refugees stranded in Greece due to the closing of EU borders. Refugee boats continue to arrive to Greece daily, and there are millions of Syrians (along with Afghans and Iraqis who are also fleeing war and terrorism) living in long term camps in other nations, such as Lebanon, Jordan, and Turkey. There is a great level of need in all of those places. Your donations will help us ship donated goods to camps, and to buy critically needed items in host countries.
A significant portion of humanitarian aid in this crisis has been funded by grassroots organizations- fueled by donations from people just like you. Your money will not pay for a hefty CEO salary, a flashy building, or expensive advertisements. We will partner with organizations on the ground, delivering aid directly to refugees. We've worked with these folks, and they don't waste A DIME. Please, join us on this journey to help restore humanity.
