Thousands of refugees might be heading towards Greece 

A Drop in the Ocean is deeply concerned with reports stating that a large number of refugees are on their way from Turkey to Europe. This will strongly affect Greece and the Greek islands, who are already struggling with an overload of people living in refugee camps. 

A place to relax and learn in Nea Kavala

Some play chess, others do different forms of handicrafts, work out or learn Greek. At our new Drop Centre in the refugee camp Nea Kavala we arrange different activities for every age. The centre, renovated by our volunteer field workers and camp residents, are now filled with laughter and good conversations.

Temporarily closed activities, Moria Village, Lesbos

The tense situation on Lesbos has developed in a way,  that makes it difficult for A Drop in the Ocean to continue our activities in Moria Village, for the time being. However, our activities inside Moria Refugee camp will continue as usual.

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.
