WINTERISATION PROJECT IN KALOCHORI REFUGEE CAMP COMPLETE

Imagine spending winter sleeping on cold concrete. Most refugees in Northern Greece are ‘housed’ in tents, usually inside old industrial warehouses. These spaces were never designed for human habitation and winter poses a real threat to the health of residents.

In response, our implementing partners at the ‘Get Sh*t Done’ Team is producing raised wooden flooring in the Help Refugees Greece warehouse to protect occupants from cold and flooding. It’s a small but extremely important step to improve living conditions. And this is no minor operation. In the last month, they’ve produced over 3,000m2 of new flooring. Their work is ensuring that Greece’s often-harsh winter is more comfortable and survivable for thousands of people.
