Our Purpose

A Drop in the Ocean aims to provide immediate and direct aid to refugees. Our main focus is to help children and their mothers upon their arrival in Europe by coordinating volunteers and by collecting and distributing necessary equipment. A Drop in the Ocean was founded in September 2015 and since then we have coordinated more than 4000 aid workers in Greece, where aid is highly needed.

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.
