This past week our volunteers in Cherso and NEA Kavala camps have been working hard on supplying both camps with winter clothes. With the market building not quite finished in NEA Kavala they have sent a team to go container to container and tent to tent writing down individual clothes orders. The need is great and the need is now.
In the Drop in the Ocean we have people with different backgrounds and experience who are volunteers. Check out why Tom is a volunteer with us at this video made by Stein Syrstad
Around two thousand volunteers have travelled with the Drop in the Ocean since the beginning of the refugee crisis. The majority of the volunteers are women. However, there is no restriction for men to be a volunteer.
Nicolas Lozano-Landinez, volunteer for Drop in the Ocean, shares his experiences as volunteer in Skaramangas refugee camp in Greece. From July to September, he volunteered at the Skaramangas Refugee Camp. This is a state-sanctioned camp 30 minutes west of Athens that provides shelter for refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kurdistan, and Pakistan.
