A Drop in the Ocean need volunteers who can travel to Greece in April. We need volunteers from 8th of May in Athens and we need volunteers in Nea Kavala in Northern Greece from 16th of April.
As a volunteer in A Drop in the Ocean you will work directly with residents in the refugee camps we are present. The work consists largely of distribution of food, clothing and other necessary items. Volunteers must be able to work in Greece for at least ten days.
We are working in the official refugee camp Nea Kavala in Northern Greece. A camp that has just over 500 residents and is located about an hour’s drive from the city of Thessaloniki.
A Drop in the Ocean is responsible for the distribution of food and clothing in the camp, and this will be important daily tasks for volunteers in Nea Kavala. In addition, volunteers work in our warehouse where we receive and store donations. Two days a week volunteers will travel to Thessaloniki and pick up vegetables that they will distribute to the residents of the camp.

In Athens, we are working in the official refugee camp Skaramangás, which is about 40 minutes by car away from the centre of Athens. Approximately 2,500 people are living in the camp.
Volunteers work with different tasks and activities that A Drop in the Ocean organise in the camp. We have created a space for mothers and children and have a community centre where we organise English classes for adults, dance lessons for girls, game evenings and lend out sewing machines. In addition, we distribute clothes and food to camp residents and have a warehouse where we sort and store donations we receive. As a volunteer you are expected to contribute both in the warehouse and in the camp.
