Summerisation 2020

Campaigns

This campaign is now complete.

For the thousands of vulnerable people living in and around camps on the Greek islands, SUMMER is a season of survival. Long 40 degree days in the hot Aegean sun. Tossing and turning at night in an overheating tent. Fears of dehydration due to limited access to water and burnt and bitten skin as sunscreen and mosquito repellent is hard to come by.

That's why we are rolling out SUMMERISATION, the act or process that helps to SAFEGUARD a person or community against harsh summer conditions by providing them with PROTECTIVE GOODS.

Our Goal

This summer, we aim to ensure the SAFETY and WELLBEING of 5,000 unequipped men, women and children living in the Olive Groves outside of Moria, but we hope to also touch many more lives. To make this a realisation we need to raise a total of €50,000 to assist with the SUMMERISATION of the Olive Grove campUs.

HOW CAN I HELP?
