    Story

    Hi guys! I will join Refugee4Refugees for 2 weeks in May as a general volunteer, assisting in basic emergency response (boat spotting, rescue, general assistance) and in their clothing distribution warehouse. For further info about the work they do, visit https://refugee4refugees.org. Your support is much appreciated!

    Refugee4Refugee (R4R) founder Omar Alshakal sought to create a non-political organisation that addresses the needs and concerns of refugees, while also encouraging fellow asylum seekers to get involved and take the lead in relief efforts.

    Omar is a Syrian refugee and brings a unique perspective as someone who arrived in Europe in 2014, after swimming for 14 hours from Turkey to Greece. He has seen the weaknesses of the asylum process first hand. Omar started the charity to tackle these challenges head on.

    As a former lifeguard, he saw an opportunity to improve boat spotting and landing support. Refugee4Refugees then transports arrivals to a temporary camp where people can receive food, water, clothing, medical attention and sleep.

    In November 2017, Refugee4Refugees hired a warehouse outside of Moria Camp, the largest refugee camp on Lesvos. It is a distribution point for clothing and supplies for those living inside the camp.

    Within one month of opening R4R was assisting up to 550 people in day with winter clothes and supplies to survive the cold. They are excited to expand this project to ensure all refugees on Lesvos live in safety and security.

    For Refugee4Refugees to continue operations, they need our support. Help them to make sure there is always someone on the beach to welcome refugees when they first set foot in Europe.

    Thank you!

    Thierry aka Titi
