Summerisation 2021

Current Campaigns

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

In order to protect the residents of RIC Lesvos this summer, we desperately need to construct shaded areas, in all zones, in all community spaces, in all walkways. And we need to do this fast. We also need to continue equipping tents with fans and ensure we have enough funds for maintenance and replacements across the remaining summer months. To make this realisation, we need to raise a total of €50,000 to assist with the summarisation of RIC Lesvos, with and for the community. 

HOW CAN I HELP?
