Volunteering for refugees in Greece

Hey

Thanks for checking out my campaign. I’m raising funds to help finance my time volunteering on the Greek island of Lesvos, where thousands of refugees have ended up after fleeing war in their own countries.

Working for refugee4refugees.org, I'm doing stuff like helping out in the warehouse, where they collect and distribute clothes and aid, and assisting with boat spotting and landings.

It's totally unpaid and I have to cover all my costs myself, including food and accommodation, getting to Lesvos, etc,  so whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated, and will help me to help others for longer.

I'm hoping to stay for a few months, but it really depends on how much I can raise. I'll certainly be making your money go a long way by doing stuff like living in shared rooms and eating whatever the Greek equivalent of baked beans on toast is.

Thanks for your help!
