In view of the upcoming winter and the increase in arrivals at the entry points, METAdrasi calls for everyone’s contribution in collecting humanitarian aid for the refugees that remain confined in the camps of Lesvos, Chios, Kos, Leros, Samos and Orestiada.
In particular, we need:
– Body soap
– Trainers & flip flops (sizes 20-45)
– Sleeping bags & sleeping pads
You are kindly asked NOT to bring items other than the ones listed above.
The material collection will take place from Monday 23/9 until Wednesday 2/10 (except from Saturday and Sunday), 11:00-17:30, at METAdrasi’s premises in Tavros (metro station “Kallithea”), 7, 25 Martiou Street, 1st floor.
METAdrasi’s team members, activated in all entry points, in cooperation with the administrators of the Reception and Identification Centers, have recorded the shortages and they will see that all items reach the people in need.
The transportation of the material from the port of Piraeus to the islands is carried out by Blue Star Ferries and Hellenic Seaways, courtesy of Attica Group.
METAdrasi initiated the humanitarian aid missions in 2013, while since the beginning of September, three missions have already taken place, to Chios, Samos and Kos. However, needs remain great and urgent.
We thank you all!
