There more than 60,000 refugees in Greece waiting to be relocated or reunited with family. Although Greece was once just a stop on the Western Balkans Route, the borders allowing passage to other countries in Europe closed in February of 2016. For those waiting, access to things like shoes, clean, dry clothing, housing, baby formula, food, running water, and electricity is scarce.
Many more are living in impoverished conditions in other nations such as Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan - where it is difficult or impossible for them to work.
We partner with volunteer groups on the ground to provide aid in the form of donated shoes and clothing, as well as funds to purchase needed goods in host countries.
We spent a week working in Lesvos, Greece, doing the best we could to assist refugees in the registration camp there. When you see how great the needs are, its hard not to come home and want to keep doing whatever you can to help. We know lots of you would like to help, but can't just pack up and go to a refugee camp. Well, here's your chance.
Help us get pre-sorted and packed donations to camps, where they can be distributed directly to those that need them. Donated funds go toward purchase of goods on the ground and shipping of items donated here in Atlanta.
