Weʼve raised £642 to help fund Refugee Support in Greece
- Katsikas, Greece

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
REFUGEE: a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster
Refugees and migrants have been arriving in Greece on foot, over unsafe waters and via human trafficking since 2015 - and the numbers have only been increasing. Not only is the journey horrendous, but upon arrival these migrants are faced with overcrowded and decrepit conditions alongside hostility and mistreatment by the local authorities.
We hear about this in the news all the time, but it is far too easy to say "there there" safely from the comfort of our own homes. As a passionate little lady I am challenging this attitude by travelling to the heart of this crisis in Europe in June and hopefully making a small difference with a huge impact.
I will be volunteering in Greece with refugee support.eu , who desperately need donations to fund supplies, activities and running costs for their various camps all over Greece. If 200 of my friends on Facebook were to donate even £2 each the goal would be reached and much appreciated. Thanks 4 reading and please help if you can <3
