Help us reach refugees and asylum seekers to get to vital appointments.
Reach Refugees are collaborating with an AMAZING charity in Northern Greece, The Open Cultural Center (https://openculturalcenter.org/) to provide cash assistance for this service to the local eligible community.
Refugees and asylum seekers need to spend their money on basic necessities not public transport to appointments they have a right to access already.
These appointments include many things we take for granted like getting to the doctors or a hospital, or the asylum service to progress their asylum applications or accessing legal aid or advocacy.
Some of these journeys could simply be a 9euro bus ride or many buses and/or trains and/or even a ferry ride… which could amount to over 100euros per person!
This means as little as a fiver can help someone access a life-changing services but it also means as much as much as £75 could be needed for a single trip!
These people are also often at risk during their travels for multiple reasons. We want to ensure that everyone we can support has access to safe and reliable public transport and doesn’t have to resort to other riskier means for, often, such a simple amount.
Any help you can offer will have a huge impact on people's lives. We hope to support as many people as possible for as long as we can.Our aim is to collaborate with other organisations in Greece to provide the same service more widely in the future, Help us Reach Refugees!
