We’ve spent nearly £14000 on aid in the first half of this year! Thank you for making this happen!

Expenditure update Jan 2018 – Jun 2018

  • What a year it’s been so far, and not without its challenges! Nearly 60,000 refugees remain in Greece, the hotspot camps on the islands remain over double their capacity. People are still arriving. There are still many gaps in care and aid, and we continue to do our best to help plug these. Fundraising has been particularly challenging, possibly due to the lack of media coverage on the situation. Regardless of this, made possible by our supporters, we have spent nearly £14,000 on helping and supporting refugees in Greece in the first 6 months of this year.
  • £526 has been spent shipping donated clothes, toiletries and baby items to Greece for distribution through a number of the projects we support.
  • £440 has been provided to Tiafi, an organisation on the western coast of Turkey to provide transport for disabled/injured refugee children to their rehabilitation centre.
  • £278 has been spent on The Khora info map project in Athens.
  • £871 has been spent on providing underwear for refugees in one of the camps in Athens through The Unmentionables.
  • £1418 has been spent on the hygiene kit project in Leros, working with ECHO100Plus.
  • £560 has been spent on food for the refugee community in Rhodes in collaboration with Oasis.
  • £2837 has provided a refurbished shower, a changing room, the conversion of a classroom plus food for The Orange House in Athens.
  • £972 has provided baby items amongst other needs for the refugees in Leros in collaboration with Leros Solidarity Network.
  • £1132 has been sent to Samos Volunteers to help provide necessary resources for their drop in centre for the refugee community on Samos.
  • £511 has been spent on food for Nea Kavala Art Without Borders.
  • £3652 has been sent as a grant to ECHO100Plus for use in The Hub drop in centre on Leros.
  • £241 has provided food vouchers for vulnerable refugees in Athens through the Greek Council for Refugees.
  • And, because we are a small, voluntary run charity, it means we have kept our running/admin costs down to under 3% at £350.
  • We couldn’t have done any of this without the generous donations of our supporters, and the amazing fundraising efforts of our supporting partners- Bearwood Action For Refugees, Kings Heath Action For Refugees and St Peters Mission Group. Thank you for your ongoing support, without which we wouldn’t have made the difference we have.
