Better Days for Camp Moria - Greece Sow & Seed Project
The Civil War in Syria has spawned one of the largest and most challenging refugee crisis since WWII. It's estimated that more than $50,000 individuals have been displaced and are now living indefinitely in tiny camps in Greece as a result of the EU's decision to close that country's borders, shattering refugees' hopes of immigrating to Europe.
While applications for asylum are in process for many, approvals could take months, if not years. Meanwhile, the Greek government's resources are stretched way too think to effectively manage a humanitarian issue of this magnitude- its up to all of us to help, Will you Share Your Hope with Syrian Refugees in Crisis?
Do Your Part was among on the the first grassroots, American-based NPOs on the ground in Lesbos, where we've been doing everything possible to help ease the burden on that country's infrastructure and provide much-needed services and support for the refugees. We would like to ask for your support today for our Sew and Seed project-- a simple, but vital program designated to gove refugees options for living with grace, dignity and hope.
