Thanks to your amazing generosity we were able to provide funds for our partner foodKind to enable them to provide and deliver food to refugees in Athens, Malakasa and Oinofyta refugee camps on the fringes of the city. Here is what they want us to say to you

"It finally happened, we got a new van and she's beautiful! Thank you so much forRefugees for making such a huge difference to our work. Having a reliable van is SO important and it's wonderful to do our deliveries in Athens without wondering if something will fall off the vehicle!"

In a typical week the van YOU helped purchase allows the team to provide

1,500-2,000 cooked, hot meals (including 250kg of fruit and veg!)

400 dry food packs for 750bpeople containing 200kg rice, 200kg pasta, 400L milk, 160kg pulses, 400tins tomato paste, 200L cooking oil, 200kg sugar and 200kg flour

150 mother's food and hygiene packs.

In an average month this equates to 8,400 nutritious hot meals, 881 mother's packs to pregnant and nursing mothers in 3 refugee camps in Athens

The van supplied to foodKind by YOU allows them to do all of this and more! Driving hundreds of miles every week to collect thousands of kilos of ingredients and distribute desperately needed food to thousands of people.

From the bottom of our hearts, the foodKind team and the thousands of people they support we THANK YOU!

PROJECT REPORT I

A New Van to Deliver Freshly Made Food

November 2021

Thanks to your incredible generosity and kindness our campaign target has been reached and this new foodKIND van will help thousands of people in need over the coming months and years!

During my most recent volunteering trip to Athens in September 2021 I volunteered with the wonderful foodKIND team for a day, under the supervision of experienced co-ordinator, Paddy. One thing that became clear from the moment he picked me up at the station at 8am… they truly need a new van!

During the day we worked hard, and we had fun. 

Straight from the station, Paddy and I went to collect the days’ fresh fruit and vegetables before heading to foodKIND “HQ” and getting ready for a day’s work.

In the morning we went to Malakasa II Refugee Camp where the team give weekly dry food packs to everyone without Government support. Later we were back there, and also at Malakasa I with our hot food offering, and the ever-popular fruit salad which the kids can’t get enough of! The distributions at Malakasa I and nearby Oinofyta Refugee Camp included extra-nutritional mum and baby food packs. Thursdays is their busiest distribution day.

Their search for a new van is live and we’re waiting for word any day that they’ve found the perfect vehicle.
