    Story

    Hello everyone

    In September I will be travelling to Patras in Greece to volunteer for 3 months helping refugees as part of the FoodKIND charity. There are a number of refugee camps surrounding Patras but it can be hard to get into these, leading to a large number of migrants having to sleep in abandoned warehouses and factories, facing poor living conditions and beatings from the police. Most of the refugees are from Syria and as the war continues there are more arriving everyday, many of them young unaccompanied minors. FoodKIND helps by providing 2 meals per day to the refugees living on the streets and in the abandoned factories. Without money to pay for food this is an essential service, and also provides compassion and human contact to people who have been through a lot of hardship.

    For my stay I need to raise funds to cover accommodation and food costs, with any extra being donated to the FoodKIND organisation. For this I will be walking the West Highland Way. It usually takes around 7 days but I will be attempting to do it in 5 (brick). I would appreciate if you all had a look at the FoodKIND website and consider giving me a donation, any amount welcome.

    Thankyou!

      Hi everyone! I've just returned from Greece. I spent 11 weeks coordinating a kitchen in the city of Patras, providing daily meals, clothing and hygiene products to around 400 refugees living in 2 abandoned factories. Halfway through this I took 2 weeks away from Patras to work with rescue teams on Chios and Lesvos, meeting people off the boats from Turkey, transporting them to a stage 2 UN camp and preparing them food there before they were transported to the main camp. It was an eye opening experience which was as shocking as it was inspiring
