On Samos island, the refugee camp there was built to accommodate 600 people, and it currently houses over 4,100. These numbers speak for themselves. With this in mind, on the 3rd of April I am going back to Greece to volunteer in this refugee camp after hearing that the island is in desperate need of help with the situation there being extreme.
Having done this before a couple of times, I have done this fundraiser before and if you're reading this then no doubt you have probably read my other ones in the past and are aware of the situation and what is required; you know the score. The situation in Greece is still a massive heartbreak, with children drowning in the ocean, and human beings suffering to an extent that you and I can only imagine.
Please do donate to help me fund my work out there, you don't have to give a million pounds, but whatever you think you can spare goes towards us doing our part to help people who desperately need us to help them.
I have paid for my flight out to Athens, followed by a ferry to Samos. All in all so far that has cost me about £150, not including getting to and from airports and ferry ports ect... I still have to raise some funds to help me pay for accommodation out there and living expenses as of course, we do this work for free and none of us are wealthy. I will spend around 4 weeks on the island working in the camp for an organisation that has been there for a long time and no doubt we will be very very busy, everyday.
I will keep a detailed account of expenses and do a weekly video update from Samos to inform you about how your donation has helped.
