£800raised of £1,000 target by 16 supporters

    Weʼve raised £800 to Lesvos Solidarity - Pikpa. An independent and amazing refugee camp in Lesvos. I particularly want to raise funds to support the school.

    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.


    I am trying to raise funds for an amazing refugee camp and charity called Lesvos Solidarity. The founders have just received the prestigious UNHCR Nansen award for their humanitarian efforts.

    In 2012 they set up an open, self-organised refugee camp run entirely on the efforts of volunteers and donations. They have helped over 30,000 refugees. They desperately need funds to accommodate more people and, critically, provide education for the young.

    There is little we can do to shift the shameful political impasse, but we can improve the situation of those who are trying rebuild their lives in desperate circumstances.

    The conditions in many government controlled refugee camps across Europe is dire - overcrowded, squalid and at times violent, with little capacity for care and the preservation of dignity.

    In contrast, Lesvos Solidarity provides a unique and immensely positive vision of what is possible in this crisis. To learn more go to their website:
