We make it easier to help refugees!
The purpose of A Drop in the Ocean is to provide support for people who are fleeing war and persecution as well as to spread the word about the current situation for refugees and migrants. Where appropriate, our main focus will be on helping children and their mothers. A Drop in the Ocean was founded in September 2015, and has since then organised more than 6500 volunteer field workers to go to Greece, where the need for help is high.
A Drop in the Ocean is present in the island of Lesvos, Samos, Northern Greece and the Athens area. We work directly inside the refugee camps, run by Greek authorities. Our main work tasks are to distribute food, clothes and non-food items. We are also involved in planning and organizing different activities for children and adults in the camps. Furthermore, we assist in teaching English as well as provide material and logistical support for bilingual education.
