Our cooperation with the Greek Council for Refugees (GCR)

A Drop in the Ocean is very happy to have inaugurated its cooperation with the Greek Council for Refugees (GCR) regarding the support of legal aid for asylum seekers on Lesvos.

Moria – A typical day in the camp

A Drop in the Ocean has restarted our activities for unaccompanied minors in Moria refugee camp. Our coordinator Magnus Svensson describes an emotionally strong meeting with the children who have been missing activities for several weeks, and that there are even more children participating in our activities than before.

World Refugee Day – support unaccompanied minors on the run!

June 20 marks World Refugee Day in support of persons who are forced to flee. A particularly vulnerable group are unaccompanied minors. They are all alone, without close caregivers. For months and even years, their everyday life is filled with uncertainty of what the future might hold. Then it is important to have something meaningful to do and different activities to attend.

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.
