by Stichting Because We Carry Vetted since 2017


Because we Carry will prepare the food for the refugees during Ramadan in campus Kara Tepe on the Greek Island Lesvos. Because they lost almost everything, we would like to give them a little bit of hope and our love. The preparations for Ramadan 2018 are in full swing and we have put together a super-international menu for this special month. The cost of this month of awareness, gratitude and sharing is 54.000,- dollar which is a major expense for us. All contributions are very welcome!

Every day we will distribute bags filled with fresh produce like tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese and bread to the 1300 children, mothers and fathers living on site. The people who are fasting will receive their bags late at night, so they can start their fasting day well nourished and the people not fasting will get theirs in the morning, for breakfast. Everyday each person will also receive dates and throughout the week extras are added too, such as yoghurt, honey, lemon, fruit and boiled eggs.


Because we Carry is there to help the people in need. These people needs us, otherwise they don't have food and that is something we don't like. They didn't choose for the life they live now and we are here to give them a little bit of hope and our love.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide the food for 1300 children, women and men.
