The weather is going to deteriorate soon, temperatures will plumet and there will be greater risk of rain. This will make the refugees journey even more difficult. Im concerned that families travelling on foot across Europe will be I'll prepared for the rain and biting cold as they travel north through Europe
There is a real risk of hypothermia for families sleeping out, especially vulnerable are the women and children.
The need some basic essentials to try to help with some of the hardships of the cold that they will be facing soon. I am trying to raise funds waterproof ponchos, emergency foil blankets and warm hats gloves and scarfs in all sizes.
I am travelling to northern Greece at the end of October to volunteer with the Refugee Solidarity Movement Thessaloniki. I am self-funding my trip.
I have been in touch with volunteers and asked, how we can help. What is needed in the coming months?
Volunteer coordinators say that the refugees will need protection form the rain and cold.
The items bought with the money donated, will be ordered online and posted directly to the volunteer group in Thessaloniki and onthe Greece/Macedonia boarder for distribution direclty to refugees in need.
Every £5 donated by you will pay for a poncho and emergency blanket or a warm hat, wooly scarfs and dry gloves why not sponsor just one warm item if clothing now and help them set off better prepared for the road ahead?
Please dontate whatever you can. Large or small. All donations will go directly to helping refugees fight the elements. Every donation will make a huge positive difference to someone in need.
