Looking back over 2017

In 2017, we have spent over £21,000 in helping refugees in Greece.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of our supporters who have made this possible.  2017 has been challenging in many ways.  Whilst refugee arrivals in Greece significantly increased over the latter half of the year, fundraising has become more and more difficult due to a lack of media interest in what has been happening.  We have been able to respond to needs as they change and you can see a breakdown of where we have directed funds to support and help refugees in Greece over 2017;

  • £2223 has funded hygiene kits in Leros in collaboration with ECHO100Plus
  • £841 has funded food in collaboration with Nea Kavala Art Without Borders
  • £1362 has funded food in Rhodes in collaboration with Oasis
  • £3181 has funded food and various other needs via Hope Café in Athens
  • £2708 has funded the info map and roof garden projects at The Khora in Athens
  • £1997 has funded food and various other needs at The Orange House in Athens
  • £3095 has funded underwear in collaboration with The Unmentionables
  • £753 has funded food and various other needs at Pikpa in Leros
  • £442 has funded various needs in Samos through Samos Volunteers
  • £914 has been granted to ATLAS for their outreach program in Greece
  • £1000 has been spent on accommodation for vulnerable refugees
  • £2056 has been spent on miscellaneous items such as but not limited to medical supplies and children’s shoes
  • £863 has been spent on shipping items from clothing to nappies to hygiene items from the UK to Greece

We couldn’t have done any of this without you, thank you.  You can read more about each individual project in the projects we support tab in the menu bar on our website.  We don’t intend on giving up, and strive in wanting to make more of a positive difference.  We need your help, and as we operate solely on donations-your support is vital.  Aegean Solidarity Network Team UK is entirely voluntary run, so you can be sure that your donation is making maximum positive impact.  Click donate to visit our secure donate platform where you can sign up to make regular donations, and gift aid your donation to make it go even further
