Urgent Samos Appeal: New Project Start-Up

This month, AFE are opening a new project on Samos. We're building on almost 3 years of experience running non-formal education for youth from the refugee community on Chios.

The situation on Samos

Samos is 3 hours south of Chios by ferry. It hosts thousands of refugees fleeing war and persecution in countries across the Middle East and Africa.

There are currently over 4,500 asylum seekers on Samos - a much higher number than Chios, yet there are far fewer organisations helping. Despite this huge number, the camp has an official capacity of just 650. Thousands live in the surrounding forests, in freezing conditions, without proper shelter. 

We are opening a centre that offers a safe space away from the camp. Here we will provide a warm retreat, education in languages, IT, music, languages and much more.

But whilst we have the funds for our first months, we urgently need donations towards crucial start-up costs which our budget doesn't cover.

We want to open this warm space ASAP since winter continues to lash with devastating consequences onto the Aegean islands. To do this, you can help by donating directly towards the costs of immediate essentials: shelving, heaters, tea urns, games, cleaning products, pots and pans.

We’re asking you to share this fundraiser and give a small contribution.

After visiting Action for Education in Chios and participating in a Mindfulness projects there, I know that if they are launching this appeal it means that is urgent to help refugees in Samos
