  • The German organization “Kinder auf der Flucht” (Children on the run) will send in November and December two teams to Lesbos. A doctor, a midwife and a medical student with other volunteers will donate their holidays to provide emergency relief for children, pregnant women and families. Every euro that you donate will 100% benefit the children and their families. With your money the volunteers will buy medicines,  emergency blankets as well as other protection means against rain and cold. All administrative costs of the association are completely donated by the members. This is the link to the fundraiser.
  • Aitima NGO with your help will provide food and warm clothes to the most vulnerable refugees through the harsh winter. It will also provide free expert legal aid to enable refugees to seek asylum and get the necessary documents to be able to work. This is the link to the fundraiser. 
  • We’re raising money to help refugees arriving on the Greek island Lesbos because they need food, water and clothing. 
  • Make a meaningful impact in the lives of Syrian mothers and babies by donating baby carriers. As of October we have reached our initial funding goal and have collected 3,000 baby carriers. Moving forward as Carry the Future, we plan on using additional funds raise to establish a no-profit and fund future campaigns that focus helping refugees with small children (baby carriers, basic supplies..). Here’s the link to the fundraiser.  Thi is the facebook page for updates.                   
  • On 19th November 2015, RefugEase is setting up camp – helping refugees coming off the boats. We’ll be working hard to feed them and put up shelter. This particular fundraiser is to pay for a 40ft shipping container filled with (already collected) emergency humanitarian aid: baby food / milk, tents, tarpaulin, sleeping bags, roll mats, clothes and toiletries to get to the island in time for our arrival.  They are small and don’t have overheads (so 100% of your donation will be spent on the cause!). This is the link to the fundraiser. 
  • Help refugees in Pikpa (Mytilene, Lesvos) which is a “squatted” old camp that it had been used as a social camping in the past. Currently, in this self-organized camp there are around 160 refugees living in tents and wooden dorms.
