CRIBS International fundraises to provide accommodation for families with newborn babies or where the women are pregnant so they can leave the camps and have a roof over their heads. 

Many women have caesarian sections in Greece, often against their will. 

Donations can be made directly to the following account
CRIBS International
Lloyds Bank
Carphilly branch
Please mark donations New Baby or, if you prefer, use GoFundMe which charges 5%.

Accommodation, food and nappies cost about 700 euros per family per month. 
Please give what you can. It is very much appreciated.
The families are isolated and need our support in their difficult time.

In the camps, accommodation is in tents or isoboxes with little access to heating or electricity.

It has been as cold as -8 degrees lately with ice and snow causing water supplies to freeze up.  In the summer it will rise to 40 degrees.

This family are now safe inthe warm and dry . Happy families thanks to you. We are so thankful to have the support of such awesome donors and supporters who run half marathons, get very muddy for us, make jewellry for us, put on quizzes and host parties and all sorts of other events. Big thanks all round. Please keep it coming.

Another woman, Reema  had her fifth  caesarian section to give birth to her baby son . A caesarian section is major surgery and the recovery period is of key importance. A woman who has had a caesarian section will not be able to do any heavy lifting, including her other children, for six weeks. She will not be able to haul buckets of water to wash the family's laundry, nor will she will  be able to squat and sit on the floor. She will require  access to good hygiene - a clean toilet and a proper shower so as not to risk infection. In short, women like Reema urgently need facilities that are not currently available in her in the camps.

Two days ago a friend of CRIBS gave birth to a beautiful baby girl in Thessaloniki hospital. She is currently living in a hotel room, or will be when she leaves the hosopital. We would love to be able to provide her with a flat to live a normal life and cook for herself but we need to increase our monthly income 500 euros PER MONTH to do this. If you can help, please do. xxxx

Baby Raid and his parents have now been warm and dry in a hotel in Athens for almost two weeks. Our next step is to move them to an Air BnB so they can have a more normal life. On current investigations, this will cost about £22 pounds per night. Can you help house them for a night? For two nights? For a week. Get together with your friends and hold a fund raiser for baby Raid and the other babies in need of a warm dry and safe place to live. Shukran

Through your donations this mum and baby and his dad are now safely housed in comfortable accommodation in Athens. This is with thanks to you great donors.

Today they visited AMURTEL
where they both had their first post natal assessment at 4 weeks . They also were given some baby clothes and a stroller. Our worker on the ground, Kayra Martinez has also taken them for other appointments . We are seeking a long term plan in an apartment for them where they will be able to live a much more normal family life. Without your support none of this would be possible. Shukran.
