Over the past 18 months, Food and Warmth For Refugees have made a number of trips to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Hungary and Greece to volunteer in refugee camps. In 2015/2016, we raised nearly £30,000 which we spent on:
- a mobile kitchen currently serving hot meals to 1,000 people a day in Belgrade;
- a life-boat which was involved in rescue missions off the coast of Greece; and
- food, warm clothes and other basic necessities for people in refugee camps in Serbia and Greece.
This year, we hope to raise even more money to do even more. For our online donations, we have teamed up with the amazing charity "Donate 4 Refugees" in order to be able to make your donations go even further, by being able to claim gift aid and to collaborate with Donate 4 Refugees' team of British volunteers in the field.
The money that we raise will again be spent on a number of different projects providing food and warmth for refugees.
Donate4Refugees fund-raises to buy daily essentials - things you and I are privileged to take for granted - for vulnerable children and adult refugees. Items including food, clean water, clothes, shoes, first aid, phone credit, personal safety and education.Donate4Refugees works with amazing British volunteers who are on-the-ground feeding, clothing, welcoming and supporting destitute refugees here in the UK, across Europe, and beyond.
