URGENT GREECE APPEAL

The situation for refugees in Greece is critical. In response, we're launching an urgent appeal to provide healthcare for thousands who need it. Now, more than ever, is the time to stand with Greece.

 

STORY

The humanitarian situation in Greece has sharply escalated in the past two weeks. More than 12,000 refugees are stuck after being refused entry to Macedonia, with huge numbers arriving every day.

Children and babies are suffering. Many have fevers, coughs, dehydration, diarrhoea and terrible nappy sores. They are damp, cold and are forced to inhale smoke from fires lit to keep them warm.

Doctors of the World has volunteer doctors and nurses providing urgently needed medical care in clinics in Idomeni, Chios, Lesvos, Athens as well on the ferries travelling between these locations.

£25 could pay for two baby kits, which includes nappies, lotion and milk powder

£80 could pay for a tent and mattress for four refugees in Athens

£135 could pay for an emergency medical backpack for a mobile medic

Every donation will go directly to our work in Greece.

THANKYOU
