We stand #WithRefugees
"I recently visited the Greek arrival islands of Chios and Lesvos to volunteer helping refugees. And I found myself having a wonderful time surrounded by inspiring, beautiful people.
"But it's those very people who need our help. Now. Today.
"...because their asylum claims take too long to process (some have been waiting two years), because the cash cards aren't enough to live off and the government food is largely inedible, because most arrive with only the clothes on their backs and no one is responsible for getting them more, because refugee camps are in the middle of nowhere hushed away from society, because refugees live in tents and ISO boxes rather than in homes, because half of refugees are children and precious few are in school, because medical and dental care is insufficient and because there's poor wifi and nothing to do and mental health issues are on the rise....
"Because of all these things, and more, refugees still very much need OUR help - yours and mine. Without our help their essential needs for life: food, water, shelter, clothes, community and education, aren't being met. It's taking ordinary people like us, from the UK and around the world, to show refugees we care by volunteering ourselves, or making a donation to help grassroots groups such as those we proudly support. We stand #WithRefugees. Are you in?"

Your donation today will help...
Refugees on the Greek arrival island of Lesvos
"Refugee 4 Refugees is a team of volunteers supporting refugees who survive the dinghy crossing from Turkey and arrive to Lesvos. Working with other aid groups we spot boats, help them land safely, rescue people from the water, take them to the nearby camp and give them hot food and tea. Every day we save the lives of desperate people who have risked everything to cross the Mediterranean."
Your donation today will go towards buying essentials like food and water, generator fuel and vehicle fuel. Your gift could save lives.
Refugees are ordinary people, like you and I
"I would like to say thank you very much for helping us when we had the baby. My wife and I ran away from war, from death, from terror. We are now determined to raise our child well, complete our education, and see a fragment of the life we would have had in Syria."
"The volunteers interact very kindly with us. They don't treat us like refugees they treat us as if we are members of their own family. This is something that gives us a lot of ease and comfort after everything we have been through."
"Greece is part of my life now. I want to say thanks to all my awesome friends who support me here. I want to say that difficult moments introduced us to each other. My story is to be continued..."
"We were very normal people living normal lives until the war came and demolished every beautiful image in Syria. We Syrians who refused to become part of the civil war have now somehow become a crisis ourselves."
