Please help fill our emergency container for Lesvos!

As freezing winter temperatures approach, there is a desperate shortage of supplies for refugees living on the Greek island of Lesvos. Our incredible partner Attika Human Support provides over 6,000 people each month with essentials like clothing, bedding and hygiene products. But right now, their warehouse is nearly empty.

On Sunday 18th November we aim to fill a shipping container in East London. We’re asking you to group together with your friends, local community or workplace – and organise a mini collection – then bring these donated items to us on Sunday 18th November. We’ll get these items to Lesvos, where they’re needed most.

Items include:

  • Adult and children’s clothing
  • Warm socks, hats, gloves and scarves
  • Hygiene items
  • Footwear
  • Food

If you would like to coordinate a collection please register: http://bit.ly/LesvosContainer. You’ll receive all the relevant info about most-needed items, sorting, packing and how to drop-off your donations.

Please note: unfortunately we do not have the capacity to receive individual donations.

Spread the word: we need over 1500 boxes to fill the container so we really need your help!
