We are raising money to send packs of clothes and other essential items for mothers, babies and children who have landed at refugee camps in mainland Greece
This is the biggest refugee emergency since the Second World War; over 2 million refugees are displaced in foreign countries, with no sign of any resolution to end this crisis. These people have lost everything fleeing from war and faced a treacherous journey to arrive in Europe. Our aim is to keep them warm and dry before they continue their journeys into colder climates.
We have aid workers travelling to the camps in early January. They will drive the packages to Greece, so all of the money raised will be spent on provisions for the packs rather than costly postage. If you can help us to reach our target, we can ensure that every penny of your money will be spent on the items below and reach those affected directly.
We are a Cornish grassroots organisation supported by local schools, families and individuals. Our aim is to send individual parcels to be handed directly to those in need at refugee border camps. No matter how little or how much you are able to give, your donation will help those directly affected.
Thank you so much for your help.
