Hello!

In a true team effort, Echo100Plus has officially opened what is lovingly referred to as "The Shop @ Ritsona". We are proud and happy to say that this is a great stride made by our team to elevate quality of life within the camp, and to give more dignity to supply acquisition.

Free from the chaos of previous distributions, families were able to shop together for the first time in Ritsona. The opening was a great success.

Thank you so very much to all who have donated to our fundraiser, as you, too, have had a hand in our collective work.

Onward we go & Love,

Andrea, Sebastian, Maximilian, Josh, and the whole Echo team

Hello!

Ritsona has experienced a lot of changes recently, and your support is contributing to the resident's quality of life greatly.

We have begun to funnel our funds into the construction of a "shop" format for clothing distributions. This will give a more dignified process to the residents for acquisition of their clothing, and thereby improve overall quality of life within the camp.

Construction is already underway, and your donations have helped to pay for lighting, flooring, railing, and shelving fixtures for the shop. This move is really paramount in implementing moves to provide more control in the day-to-day for the residents, rather than forcing a monthly flurry of 4 am waiting lines and people leaving distressed, disgruntled, and empty-handed.

As we carry on, we hope to ebb and flow in aide with the needs of the camp, as our organization's role does. Ritsona, like many other camps in Greece, is experiencing a shutdown of food distribution, and is figuring out how to best adapt. This is was very sudden, but our team on the ground is working with other organizations to best figure out how to roll with these punches. Your donations help us do this, and most of all, they help the people of Ritsona.

Thank you for making a difference.

Love,

Andrea, Joshua, Sebastian, Maximilian, and the whole Echo team

Hello! Thank you so much for all of your support. In the interest of giving more of a concrete direction to our fundraiser, and to give some insight about happenings at Ritsona, we find it imperative to share with you some recent opportunities for vital direction that have emerged in the last little while. We have been presented with a sudden halt of incoming hygiene products (diapers, shampoo, etc.), necessitating our prompt response. We also have a plan that is in motion for a more dignified way for the residents to accrue donated clothing (a shop-format, rather than a distribution). For these reasons, we are inclined to respond quickly and channel donated funds to direct, tangible, and needed products and infrastructure within the camp. Thank you again.

Andrea, Joshua, Max, & Sebastian
