Emergency support to Greek Islands

In response to the current EU refugee crisis and continued arrival of tens of thousands of refugees into the Greek Islands – REACT completed an assessment on the ground of urgent refugee needs in September and December 2015. The need for immediate medical relief and emergency shelter for women and children was seen as a pressing issue that REACT could contribute to – specifically on the island of Lesvos.

WE ARE NOW FUNDRAISING!

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO OUR JUST GIVING PAGE HERE!

REACT is now fundraising and donating medical equipment to doctors operating in Moria registration camp as well as to long-term Greek volunteer groups providing emergency shelter to refugee women, children, the elderly and the disabled. Despite the winter, refugees are still fleeing conflict and making the journey across the sea to reach Europe. They travel in fragile rubber dinghies. Boats often sink causing children and adults to drown. These tragedies do not stop the refugees from putting themselves at the mercy of smugglers who demand hefty prices and often hand out fake life jackets.

REACT is now assisting partners in Lesvos during the winter and our campaign is to raise much needed funds to support medics and shelters in their vital and precious work with those fleeing conflict.
