BECOME PART OF A SUPPLY CHAIN OF HOPE & DIGNITY
HELPING IMPROVE THE EVERYDAY LIVES
OF REFUGEES STRANDED ON THE GREEK ISLANDS

 

Next Stop Symi is a UK-based charity working out of the small Suffolk village of Hoxne, but linking a network of supporters & partners around the country – from Sussex to Scotland, from the Midlands to Mid-Wales – all dedicated to delivering the most essential everyday items to the refugees trapped in the limbo-land of the Aegean Islands. They can’t go back and they can’t go forward. They’re housed in the most basic of conditions with little to help make their day-to-day lives bearable.
Our charity has contacts and working partners like Samos Volunteers on the islands who can keep us up to date with what’s going on – and most importantly, what’s needed.
Essential items change from person to person- the newly arrived refugees need fresh clothing, sleeping bags and tents. Mothers with young children need nappies, wipes & hygiene products. Older children need school material – reading & writing books. Sports equipment and musical instruments can help everyone pass the time more enjoyably whilst arts and crafts materials allow people to improve their surroundings and even make new clothes.
It’s all about restoring a sense of dignity to their lives.
And a van load of items like these is a van load of hope.
We raise money to buy the items to fill the van and try to run a delivery down to the camps at least twice a year. You can help support that work by helping to raise that money.
