Here’s some good news

I was reading stuff about Greece on Twitter this morning and came across something wonderful: a Greek crowdfunding site raising money to support refugees arriving by boat on the shores of Lesvos, Chios and Kos.

They are fleeing war and terror in Syria, Libya, Iraq and other places, and a group of local people are providing them with hot meals and basic supplies when they land. The locals have been supplying these needs from their own resources, but now they are asking for help from others. You can read more about this wonderful project here.


So now we have at least two ways to help these people torn from their homelands by violence and horror. We can support Médecins Sans Frontières, who man boats to rescue and give medical care to refugees traversing the Mediterranean, and we can help to provide basic supplies for them when they land… Here.
