Shelters for refugees in Greece

Following the recent fire that destroyed Greece's largest migrant camp (Moria Camp), nearly 13,000 refugees are living without shelter. Many of them are vulnerable children, pregnant women and the elderly, and they are now sleeping out in the open with nowhere to go.

We are students from the University of Toronto developing an innovative Mobile Emergency Safe Room (MESR) that can be rapidly deployed in 3 minutes using inflatable structures. We are supporting local NGOs by providing emergency shelters to both refugees and emergency workers. But we can't do it without you.

We are asking the community to help us so we have enough funds to fabricate 10 more Mobile Emergency Safe Rooms (MESR) to support the emergency workers and refugees affected by the fire at Moria Refugee Camp. 100% of the proceeds will go to the fabrication and shipping of these tents. Please support us on this GoFundMe page.
