AAGRRP Refugee Greeting Project

$1,475 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 23 people in 3 months
Created September 30, 2018
Refugees who pass a “credible fear interview” get released at bus stations across the Southern U.S. and given very little resources to connect with their family, friend, or sponsor on this side of the border. Roughly 60% of these asylum seekers travel through the Atlanta bus station. Our mission is to help asylum seekers traveling through Atlanta by providing:

·      A friendly face

·      Help navigating the station

·      Food

·      Baby needs

·      Blankets

·      Hygiene products

 

Volunteers meet the refugees at the terminal to help and provide aid items as needed. Unfortunately, these days, love and compassion can’t be traded for blankets and food. We have, however, gotten quite good at getting our costs down! Our nutrition kits are $2/kit, blankets are around $2.50, and children’s plush toys $1. All money donated goes towards purchasing items. That way, even a small donation is enough to help make a mom and her child a little more comfortable. Please help us continue providing comfort to asylum seekers in Atlanta by donating today!

 

DONATE NOW!

 

All money donated goes toward items!

And, we are always looking for more volunteers!

Let us know if you would like to join us on a trip to the bus terminal!

Hello all, thank you so much for your kind words and donations thus far. We've now been at it for some time and have welcomed over 250 people (including 80 children) to and through Atlanta with a smile, and some basic assistance, as we're able, and backed by your generosity. As the word gets out, our numbers have grown and we've welcomed on some great new partners, including some GSU students as well as a church group, many of whom have Spanish language skills, which is a bonus.

Some other fundraisers have been started by members of our Grannies group, but we'd like to make this our main vehicle for fundraising, so please feel free to share the link to this GoFundMe far and wide. We'll keep up the good work and try to post often with updates.

In solidarity and thanks.
