Material donations

Material donations

Every year we organise a transport of relief goods, which travels to Greece at the end of July and unloads goods on the island of Skyros. We distribute these during our week of work. Through lively exchanges with the islanders beforehand, we learn what materials they might need. We have already brought various medical materials, toys, writing materials, sewing machines, instruments, etc. to the island.

Between April and June, we post a list of needed supplies on this website. If you subscribe to the newsletter, you will receive them by email. We look forward to your support!
