    Weʼve raised £715 to donate to CERST - Chios Eastern Response Shore Team. (Helping refugees as they arrive on Chios island)

    Chios, Greece
    Funded on Thursday, 24th May 2018

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Chios is a Greek island, situated on the Aegean Sea, just off the coast of Turkey and home, over the last few years,, to 14,000+ refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other war-torn countries. Currently there are 1,500+ refugees in the camp, with more arriving each week.

    Refugees continue to arrive on the island, although the numbers are thankfully less than in previous years,. To see the level of support needed, please click on the link below to see live arrival statistics.

    The Chios Eastern Shore Response Team (CESRT) is an organisation that assists refugees when they arrive on the island with basic living supplies, food, shelter, emotional support and medical care. They have also set up a shelter as a safe space for children to have a warm shower, clothes, heathly food and a place to play.

    They are a community of volunteers, unpaid, working with the supplies donated and the money received to help provide assistance, which is why this is crowdfunding - I will make sure all donations are given directly to CERST.

    I will be flying out there next month to give a helping hand: sorting out the warehouse, helping at the port and working in the children's shelter. It would be great if you can show your support for CERST by making a donation to the organisation, each volunteer pays their own way and ALL the profits go towards helping these refugees.

    Thanks so much, your support is really appreciated. When I get back I can tell you exactly how your donation was spent and a little more about life in Chios.

      Thanks for your donations! I have stopped fundraising to withdraw the money while I am here - supplies ordered today and will arrive on Tuesday for me to check. If you still want to make a donation, just let me know as I will be making another order after this. Brilliant work all - so excited to deliver this to the camp xxx
