A first short impression of the work of the Cars of Hope collective with refugees in Athens.
We arrived with the Cars of Hope collective in Athens last night. We immediately went to the food distribution for homeless refugees and saw there are a lot of them. Including women and children. After that we went to the Azadi and Babylon squat. Greek authorities don’t provide housing for many refugees, so many people live on the streets, others in squats. A lot of support is needed: For food, sanitary products, medicines and other things people need for their daily life. Refugees often don’t have any health insurrance in Greece. They just don’t get one.
We need your support for our work here. At the moment we support the food distribution for homeless people in Athens. They need more than 100 meals per day. We also support the distribution of sanitary products, sleeping bags, clothes and medicines.
We also support refugees in the Azadi squat. At he moment they urgently need:
Repair of the boiler for warm water in the shower: 80 Euro.
Food for 50 – 60 people (Many families – 2 times daily), sanitary products and medicines.
Every week gas bottles to cook: 40 Euro
