Help me get clean underwear to the Katsikas refugee camp in Greece!
May 31, 2016
In the first week of July, we will drive again 3.000km from the Netherlands to Greece. This isn't the first time we have done this and up till now we could always cross all the borders without any problems because we have a EU passport.... It feels weird to be able to drive back and forth without problems while you know thousands of people can not. The last time we left, we saw the brand new fences and barbwires at the borders of FYROM (Macedonia). Within a week after our leaving, the news reached us that they closed the borders and now thousands are stuck in Greece.
I want to help out Everybody knows how harsh the life is for refugees and therefore I decided I want to help out. Just outside Ioannina there is a refugee camp in Katsikas.It's the basic things they need the most: underwear, socks, sunscreen and mosquito spray. I will try to get as many things as possible with me in the van for these people. I cannot transfer a thousand of these, but even one is more than nothing!
Who wants to pitch in?
In June I will be in the Netherlands to do the shopping. Help me out by donating money or drop some of the items above off in Amsterdam. I am not asking for large amounts of money, just a couple of euros. All the money that will be 'left over' after my van is full, I will donate to the organisation of the camp: Lighthouse Relief.
