Overtime, our commitment towards connecting willing volunteers with projects in underprivileged communities has grown,
and we aspire to expand our scope and inspire more volunteers to positively influence and help others.
In December 2015, we organized a kitchen project in Lesvos, where we served an average of 500-1000 refugees per day for three months.
During the same period, we also managed a rescue team for new boat arrivals.
After that, we coordinated a camp of 3,000 refugees at the FYROM/Greece border when the borders closed in March 2016.
Shortly after, we took charge of coordinating bulk supplies for about 10,000 refugees across 9 camps in northern Greece for eleven months -
supplies included: food for the refugee kitchen, hygienic items, facilities at camps, shelters, construction materials, and clothing.
We have also worked on special events for Muslim refugees, such as celebrations and providing halal meat for Ramadan and Eid.
During our time in northern Greece, we were also the emergency contact for the Greek military and government.
In February 2017, we moved our base to Athens in order to help individual families.
Collecting Arabic books and distributing to libraries within camps and private projects. Share your favorite Arabic books with us.
Collecting modest female clothing to restore dignity and provide choice in clothing.
When an in-person translator is not available, we have several WhatsApp groups in place to provide real-time translation services in numerous dialects.
We find the best bargains for food and bulk supplies in Greece, and buy great quality. Call us for an item you're looking to purchase, and we'll help coordinate.
