URGENT: We are raising emergency funds to move shipping containers filled with emergency humanitarian aid from UK to Europe to help refugees in need September / October 2015.
Anything earned that is over and above our target will still be greatly needed as emergency humanitarian aid needs to continue to get to regugees all over Europe.
Thank you so much in advance for you help.

About the project
It's no secret that the Syrian refugee crisis is the worst global humanitarian crisis since the Second World War.
Temperatures are falling to 6 degrees celsius in Hungary, winter is fast-approaching - the situation is only going to worsen.
We want to ease the crisis as much as possible, and as quickly as we possibly can.
We need to get emergency aid where it is needed most. It's all about organisation and logistics.
There is an overwhelming desire in people who are desperate to help, and don't know how. Our intention is to funnel this support into action.
**How does one achieve this whilst based here?
We have set up very successful urgent appeals for donations (that are still ongoing all over the UK).
**Now, what to do with the donations?
We are raising money for containers filled with medical supplies, tinned food, clothing, baby slings and tents/sleeping bags to be shipped over from the UK to Croatia / Hungary / Serbia / Slovenia / Austria. We are liasing with aid workers and charities working in relevant camps and cities to ensure the donations can be safely delivered and distributed efficiently.
The situation is changing every hour; the items will be sent where the Syrian refugees are most in need. Our focus is on Hungary for now. We will send out updates as the crisis develops.
We can feel truly the world's momentum to help; now more than ever.
