Find out about our projects in Greece as big NGOs pull out of the country
Since we funded 30 doctors to go to Lesvos to deal with the huge influx of people coming to the islands in October 2015, Help Refugees has played a huge role in the response to the crisis in Greece.
Over the past three years, we’ve been able to support incredible grassroots groups, from enabling the life-saving work of a rescue boat, to getting the most vulnerable people out of these camps and into proper homes.
With many large NGOs beginning to withdraw from the country, the future for refugees in Greece is uncertain. But as always, we’re ensuring we have the skills, resources and people to continue providing aid and essential services where they’re needed most.
Thanks to your gifts from the Choose Love store, we were able to buy a pair of shoes for every single child in the Katsikas refugee camp. We’ve also been able to keep that rescue boat running for the next three months.
But winter is here, and we still need support.
Our work is funded by everyday people like you. To donate now to help refugees in Greece, click here.
94% of your donation goes straight to projects supporting refugees & displaced people.
Our model is simple: we find the local organisations doing the most effective work, and give them what they need to help people – whether that’s funding, material aid or volunteers.
In Greece, we’re the largest funder of grassroots humanitarian work. We’ll make sure your funds go straight to those who need them.
“Gifts from the Choose Love store provided thousands of meals for people living in camps through the cold winter months. As a volunteer, that was incredible to see.”
