We receive donations from all over the world, with Habibiland as our base for storing, sorting and packing vital supplies. By collaborating with other NGOs in Lesvos, we ensure important items are distributed to camp residents on a regular basis and, especially, in emergencies.

Support for Vulnerable Populations & Free Shop:

Our Free Shop runs every week, and we frequently conduct distributions to vulnerable populations, often in collaboration with other actors. Targeted distributions occur after our team has conducted an assessment of needs, which is enabled through our community volunteer team.

Wood Workshop:

The R4R Wood Workshop currently provides furniture items to vulnerable populations in camp, with our team of visiting and community volunteers constructing each item before conducting a distribution.

R4R Malakasa Warehouse:

Our warehouse located near Malakasa (approx. 40 mins outside of Athens) acts as an NFI distribution hub to provide essential items to residents in nearby camps and supporting other actors operating in Athens.  Receiving deliveries of donations, sorting clothing and preparing packs enables us to support refugees and asylum seekers on the mainland with thousands of NFIs per month. 

NFI Distributions:

Our mainland team conducts distributions in camps nearby our warehouse, and through deliveries to various actors located throughout Athens who are in urgent need of NFIs. We’re urgently looking for volunteers with a driving licence that allows driving in Greece to support the growing need for NFI deliveries as our projects expand. Apply via the form below!
