Small update from Greece for Giving Tuesday

Petra-Olympou Refugee Camp
Petra-Olympou Refugee Camp

Hi!

It is GivingTuesday today and we have wonderful news: Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is matching your donation with 50% on GlobalGiving! Do not miss this opportunity!

IsraAID in Greece still needs your help – see our other project on Greece here on GlobalGiving – Holistic Support for Refugees Arriving in Greece, ID 24270 to donate.

The new video on the project page tells the story of a woman IsraAID has been working with in Petra-Olympou refugee camp. Awash, a 31-year-old Yazidi refugee from Syria, fled the bombings in Aleppo with her young son. Her positive spirit is truly inspiring!

Winter has come to Greece and the temperatures in the camp's mountainous surroundings are dropping below zero. Mount Olympus' snow-covered top can be seen from the camp and the families fear the long winter months ahead. UNHCR and the Greek government are struggling to find solutions for the worsening conditions and were able to relocate some of the refugees to safer locations, however many still remain in the camp, desperately waiting for their turn. 

IsraAID continues to work in the camp – providing emotional and psychological support to the residents in a bid to create a sense of routine and stability. Through activities such as physical exercise, psychosocial group sessions, stress management activities for refugees, and English lessons for all ages.

IsraAID is working hand in hand with the refugees to re-build a sense of community and hope despite the many challenges ahead.  

Thank you for your support!
