£1,360raised of £1,250 target by 20 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,360 to support the work of METAdrasi

    Funded on Friday, 3rd February 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    In February 2017 Gabriela Duch, Daniel Absolon and I will be running the El Cruce ultramarathon linking Argentina and Chile over 3 days and a distance of 100km.

    I'm a UK immigration lawyer and through this challenge I'm raising money to help METAdrasi provide support, care, assistance and legal advice to refugees arriving in Greece. METAdrasi is a Greek NGO set up in 2010, and winner of this year's Council of Europe North-South prize.

    There are currently over 57,000 refugees in Greece, over half of them women and children. A main focus of METAdrasi's work is providing a complete safety net for the protection of unaccompanied children who have been separated from or lost their parents. METAdrasi has opened safe transit accommodation facilities for unaccompanied children on Lesvos and Samos, Chios and in Athens, and a new facility is currently underway in Thessaloniki. These facilities allow unaccompanied children to be safely placed immediately upon arrival, so that they are not sent to detention centres. Each facility has a capacity for 20-25 children with a total staff of 5. The facilities run on the following targets:

    -£35 to run the facility per day per child;
    -£50 to clothe a child for a month;
    -£130 education for a child for a month;
    -£175 to feed a child for a month.

    Please donate what you can to support METAdrasi's fantastic work!!

      At the demand of our trainer Oisin, we took an 8-hour road trip to beautiful Snowdonia at the beginning December.....running up and down Snowdon in altitude training masks and temperatures of -2 is probably not everyone's idea of a fun Saturday- but lucky for us the sun was shining and the views were AMAZING, making it all worth it :-)
