WHAT WE DO

Find out about our projects across Europe and the Middle East

“Help Refugees is one of the unsung heroes of the European refugee crisis, a young grassroots collective that has tried to create a more dynamic form of aid in Calais and Greece, where even seasoned aid workers admit their traditional models have failed.” – Patrick Kingsley, The Guardian

Working with extraordinarily effective small groups and organizations that have sprung up in response to this humanitarian crisis, we respond where the need is greatest, whether that means providing food, clothing, shelter, funding or more. Unburdened by bureaucracy, we’re able to respond quickly and effectively.

We now fund more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East, making us the biggest facilitator of grassroots humanitarian aid on the continent.

Our rigorous, up-to-date needs assessments mean your donations will always go where they’re most needed. See some of our recent projects below, or take a more in-depth look at where we work.
