YOUR GENEROSITY IS DEEPLY APPRECIATED, AND IT'LL HELP IMPROVE SOMEONE'S LIVING CONDITIONS.
Did you know it snows in Greece? For those looking to help donate winter clothing for refugees, please keep in mind that it's most ideal to ship them to volunteer warehouses before winter begins so the items could be distributed in time to help keep refugees warm. If you send the items during winter, they will be sorted and packaged for distribution by the time it's warm in spring. ❄️ Image is a throwback to our volunteers frolicking amongst the olive trees.

Wishing everyone a great Friday and Happy Islamic new year from sunny Athens! The weather is gorgeous today 💙PS. We'll be announcing a new project soon, watch this space 🎊 #RefugeesWelcome
Last year, we had the pleasure to meet a very special family at a refugee camp in Greece who invited us into their tent for tea. They became one of the main families we decided to support because of their vulnerable situation. Despite all of their struggles and hardships, they are some of the strongest and most patient people we've ever known. After losing so many family members in Syria, they fled the war and arrived to Greece just as the borders to Europe closed. They've been trying to reunite with their other family members in Europe and were finally granted asylum after 17 months of waiting. Although we'd love to celebrate this news, it comes with great sadness: the family is being divided and sent to different countries, where they will be apart from each other for 2 or 3 years before they're reunited in one country. Their journey for a new life will have to continue, and we pray they will remain strong and be granted patience. 💙 #RefugeesWelcome
Καλημέρα/Good morning from Athens! What act of kindness are you thankful for today? ☀️We're thankful for Greek hospitality and sharing amazing food! 🥗#RefugeesWelcome
Over 60,000 refugees are still stuck in Greece while waiting for their approval for asylum, and there's been a recent spike of arrivals to the islands. We're in the process of assessing the ever-changing situation and will be announcing our new project very soon. Here's our favorite graffiti we found this week in Lesvos, Greece. #RefugeesWelcome
