As the need is great in Northern Greece, Boat Refugee Foundation will start a mission in the area between Idomeni and Thessaloníki. The focus is on a dignified shelter.
Around 15.000 refugees are stuck at the Greek-Macedonian Border. A large number of them came to Europe by boat. They still haven’t found a solid foothold. Shelter in this area is at its minimum and undiginified. The bad weather of these past days have caused the refugees to be literally stuck in the mud.
We focus on the most vulnerable. The elderly, woman and children.
the provision of shelter, a purposeful way of spending the day, activities to fight boredom, identifying problems and general assistance in the camps. Furthermore the prevention of illness (clean drinking water, dry clothing and shoes, a dry place to sleep) takes priority.
We are mapping the aid that is already on site and wherever possible, we seek to co-operate with other NGO’s.
A large sum of money is needed. Only with your financial support we can come into action! Your donation literally makes a world of difference. Go to this page and donate!
