Weʼve raised £900 to donate towards urgent supplies for Lesvos Solidarity, a refugee camp in Greece. I will be volunteering with them for two months (June - Aug)
- Lesbos Prefecture, Lesbos, Greece
- Funded on Friday, 30th November 2018
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.
Lesvos Solidarity is a refugee camp in Lesvos, Greece. The island of Lesvos has seen a particularly large number of refugees arrive on its shores, after making dangerous journeys from Syria, Iraq, some African countries, and elsewhere.
Lesvos Solidarity takes men, women and children - it is currently home to 16 families, in addition to other people.
I will be living on Lesvos island for the next two months (June - August), and volunteering with Lesvos Solidarity during this time. 100% of funds raised via this page will be passed directly to the camp. (I am covering my own expenses).
Any donations you can make will be truly appreciated by myself, the camp coordinators - but most importantly by the camp's residents. All funds will go directly towards their shelter, medical supplies, food & clothing, legal & psychological support and school & educational activities.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
Any donations will be very much appreciated.
