NOW_COVID-19 on-site update 3 from our Hero @Rose Hansen

When the lockdown started, the team didn't know what to do. Through a lawyer connection, Rose arranged Greek documents which gave her and her Medical Volunteers International e.V. team the right to provide medical services in a day! Since then, the team has been providing aid non-stop!

NOW_COVID-19 on-site update 1 from our hero Justyna

As a consequence of the lockdown, the kitchen had to close & 200 refugees feared to be left hungry on the street. After hearing we couldn't let the them go to the supermarket to purchase coupons, we didn't know what to do... The team on the ground, however, made an amazing push! They're cooking at their homes, preparing sandwiches or uncooked food and the DELIVER! As such, not a day has gone by without something to eat.We're very proud to be working on this project with an amazing group of volunteers and beneficiaries!

SNOW IN GREECE

Last week, we reported on snow falling in Greece and the amazing RK Sint Jan de Doper - Vecht en Venen community immediately reached out. Tonight it will freeze in the Thessaloniki region and many refugees sleep in abandoned building or outside. With this help, they'll at least have 300 pairs of warm socks and 116 pairs of gloves to fight the bitter cold tonight! Special thanks to Gerard Griffioen for being so fast to reach out and Giulia Duch Clerici from IHA - InterEuropean Human Aid Association for instanteneously arranging the response <3 <3 We are still collecting help to help the refugees through winter. Will you stand in solidarity? I keep one refugee warm for €8,00 via https://tikkie.me/pay/3625nu8m6lnltqb90hav or NL64 ABNA 0479 7172 73 / Human Aid #winteriscoming #babyitscoldoutside #weareallequal
