Travelling through Europe over the past few months has heightened my desire to help the refugee crisis in whatever way I can.

I'm now making my way to the Greek island of Lesvos to volunteer at the Kara Tepe refugee camp from 12 August. I'll be working as a team leader for an incredible Dutch organisation called Because We Carry. I'll be helping them to provide daily healthy meals, necessities and a safe and happy environment for children in the refugee camp.

Will you help pay for the cost of a meal for a family in need?

Just $1.50 AUD provides a healthy meal to a child. To put it in perspective, the cost of a fancy coffee will feed nearly 3 children.

Regardless of your political views on the situation, I'm sure you'll agree that every human, and especially children, deserve these types of basic necessities.

If you would like to donate, I've set up a Gofundme account so you can avoid the hassles of foreign bank transfers. All profits will go directly to the cause as I will be funding all my own living costs.

If you'd like to know more about Because We Carry, check out their Facebook page 
or website (Because We Carry). The content is mainly in Dutch but can be translated easily into English.

If you know of anyone you're connected to on Facebook who might be interested in donating to the cause, please share!

Many thanks,
