Why distributing clothes is important

A Drop in the Ocean supports people in Skaramagas Refugee Camp with essential articles such as clothes and hygiene items. Twice a year we arrange for a large distribution reaching every person in the camp. Depending on needs, we also arrange for additional distributions, particularly for new arrivals.

Training Workshop between Dråpen i Havet and the Greek Council for Refugees

Recruting volunteer field workers to Lesvos

A Drop in the Ocean are now restarting recruitment of volunteer field workers to Lesvos. We will work in the new temporary refugee camp, Kara Tepe, and are currently in the process of implementing new projects there.

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.
