Charity description

CalAid logo
CalAid is providing help, hope and dignity to refugees and displaced people in Northern Greece having formed in response to the humanitarian crisis in 2015.

Baby Kits 
Alongside our partners, One Refugee Child, we distribute Baby Kits to all expecting mothers in the region. 

The Optics Project

CalAid is the only organisation in Greece providing eye tests and glasses to refugees. In the winter of 2016 it became apparent that there was no provision to meet this need and so the Optics Project started.

We provide on-site testing for all refugee children in the region, working with local specialists. Glasses and advanced testing have been provided where necessary. 
The same provision is available for all referred adults. This includes self referrals as well as from medical agencies on-site.

CalAid currently provides the appropriate service to every displaced person in the Epirus region in need of optical care. In the longer term, it is the charity's objective to widen the reach of the project to Athens and across Greece.

This is a charitable fundraising appeal in aid of the CalAid
