Hello my name is Moussa and i am from Ivory Coast.
I am asylum seeker just like all the other Ivorians refugees in Greece.
I am the president of the Ivorian community of Greece. A new community that we just created, because of all these difficulties that we encounter in our everyday life here in Greece.
We need a space to meet and share our experiences. A space where we feel like home, so that we can support each other.
Winter is approaching and many of us are sleeping outside and do not know where to go. In this space, those who do not have a house will be able to sleep until they find a solution.
This space will be open to all the new Ivoirian refugees. We will welcome them into 'our home' and give them the feeling that even though everything seems so bad and difficult, here in greece there is a place like home and people just like them.
We will offer them a place to sleep, help them make administrative papers and provide them other useful information.
This space will help us in our integration in Greece.

For the moment we gather on a terrace, but this cannot be a permanent solution because if the weather starts getting colder and it rains more often it wont be able to meet there.
Space in the open air.
We therefore need your financial support to rent an indoor space for a long period.
We also could use your material support to equip the space.
( Sheets, socks, thermos for the traditional tea and coffee, cups)
If you are interested in that here is my email adress for more details concerning where you can send them.
Thank you very much for taking the time to read our needs and we would appreciate your help to change our situation.
