Thanks to idea of Tracy J. and to request of Rehana F., I started making the first prototype of a DIY wetsuit for the refugees, which is supposed to protect them from hypothermia and possibly from drowning. The assumptions are:…
Γενική Ταχυδρομική delivers humanitarian parcels within Greece free of charge.
Refugees Supply Channel Directory: The all-Greece list of local vendors, recommended by volunteers on the ground. The directory is free, public and run by volunteers. There are no obligations from being listed there.
We (the helpers, especially funding ones) have to find a way to support Greek solidarity economy AND refugees at the same time (preferably in synergy – to make all parties aware of their interdependence). Here is my attempt to propose a win-win-win scenario.
This is a first attempt to create a universal thermal #tarp/poncho/tent/sleeping envelope for #refugees. If you like it (and if we get support, of course), we will be able to make them here (in Thermaikos, Greece) and teach everyone interested how to make them as well. Together we can make one poncho for EVERY refugee entering Europe.
We want to make it one of essential pieces in the #RefugeesWelcome kit.
