    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.

    Story

    This is my third volunteer trip to Samos in the past year where I will be providing free legal support and assistance to refugees fleeing from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. There are currently around 2000 refugees being kept in a detention facility in Samos designed for only 700 people. They are living in crowded, unsanitary, desperate conditions. There are only a handful of lawyers and the need for legal support is overwhelming. Without volunteer lawyers most refugees would receive no assistance in their claims for asylum. On past trips I have paid for all travel and subsistence costs and have only fundraised in order to donate to local organisations. But to continue to make my work sustainable I am now seeking to raise funds for the most basic costs of the trip - airfare and simple accommodation. If I raise additional funds they will be donated to an amazing grassroots organisation called Samos Volunteers (https://samosvolunteers.org/), who provide essential humanitarian aid. Many of you have contributed to them on previous trips.

    Thank you for your support!
