Lifting Hands, Warming Hearts






Greece conjures up images of eternal summers, pristine beaches, and clear blue water. The Greek *winter*, however, is brutal, especially in the north where our team operates the LHI Refugee Center. The average winter temperature in Serres hovers just above freezing, with the humidity and snow intensifying the cold. Add the fact that the population of Serres camp has more than doubled in the last 4 months and you've got a winter crisis. 

We desperately need funds to clothe 1,000+ refugee men, women, and children in winter gear, because they have nothing more than the sparse summer clothes and sandals they arrived in. A little donation of $20 will buy a locally-sourced winter coat. Double that amount, and we'll be able to purchase a pair of winter boots, too. Want to go all out? Just $60 will provide basic winter gear: jacket, beanie warm socks, gloves, scarf, and boots.

We purchase the items locally in bulk from trusted vendors. Our purchases are not only immediate, but they also support a struggling economy. 

***Since reaching our goal of $50,000, we are now aiming to get up to $60,000 by the end of the year, which will help us clothe any new arrivals in early 2019, alongside our continued weekly distributions of fresh produce, bulk food, and hygiene products to Yazidi refugees in the Serres area. Thanks so much to our many supporters!***

      I visited the Serres camp while my son Aidan was volunteering there and was very impressed with Hayley’s organisation. An extremely well run charity where all the money raised goes to those who desperately need it.
