Help In Eidomeni

Check out this bad boy…!

This is the van we have been able to buy for the transportation of volunteers and runs to restock vital distribution points in Eidomeni…

Eidomeni… where 15,000 people are living in a swamp, stuck at a closed border. They can’t move forward, but they definitely can’t go back…

Eidomeni… where the mud reaches up and over the top of children’s wellies, and people try to sleep huddled inside flooded tents… Those lucky enough to actually have tents that is. Others are forced to sleep in the mud, under the stars, along the railway lines, trains passing just inches from their shivering bodies.

Eidomeni… where the capacity of only 1500 means people wait, increasingly desperately, just to eat or receive medical care. They wait for their food, just as they wait for their fate…

The volunteers on the ground do their best to provide everything they can around the clock, but with this many people it’s not possible to meet everyones needs, all of the time.

Tribe member and long term volunteer Anna says, “Everywhere you walk are faces and hands, asking for help, advice, food and shelter. The more time you spend here, the more you realise that there is never quite enough of anything to go around.”

We will continue to do our best to find tangible solutions to support the camp in Eidomeni, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for enabling us to do so! This van is vital to support the volunteers on the ground in the life saving work they are doing…

Thank you to the amazing Anna Mcphee for providing this info and working tirelessly on the ground! To follow Anna’s blog.
