New Year’s greetings – looking back at 2020

As we enter a new year, we want to take a minute looking back at the year that past. A year full of challenges where the Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on how we socialise and live our lives. It has been a difficult year; many have lost their jobs and are facing uncertain times. And for the many thousands displaced persons in Greece, the situation became, if possible, even worse.

Experiences from our Women and Babies Space

Michelle Reece from Canada has been a volunteer field worker for A Drop in the Ocean. Read about her experiences and meetings with resilient women in our Women and Babies Space on Lesvos. 

One Drop present in Bosnia-Herzegovina

In Bosnia and Herzegovina, there are now around 8,500 people on the run. The challenges in the Bosnian refugee camps are many and the conditions for those who live there are difficult.

Our Purpose

The purpose of A Drop in the Ocean is to provide support for people who are on the run, 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 volunteers to go to Greece, where the need for help is high.

The Refugee Crisis in Greece Continues

Greece, which used to be a transit country, has now become temporary residence for tens of thousands of refugees. Border controls out of Greece are stricter than ever before. Meanwhile, the influx of refugees by boat from Turkey continues, leading to an increased accumulation of refugees in both official and unofficial camps. They live under miserable and undignified conditions for an uncertain amount of time. There is a great need for aid, and our work in and around the refugee camps has never been more important.
