This Family Friendly trip is an opportunity to help the Syrian refugee crisis first hand. You will help to serve food, sort through donations, teach English plus organize play and activities for children. This is a family-focused trip where children are welcome to help in their own way at the support center on Leros. There are opportunities for those who wish to carry out more intense front line (and overnight) duties.

Travel Details:

As Leros itself is very remote there are very limited flights to and from the island. This is one of the reasons we want to help particularly on this island, many volunteers and resources go to the larger camps while Leros has been historically left to help itself and needs help desperately. Because of this though it will be an overnight flight on the 26th (a work day can be completed before the evening flight meet up) with an early morning layover in Athens on the 27th. The return flight will be early morning/afternoon which making the travels home more convenient on the little ones traveling on this trip.

Accommodation:

We'll be staying in a local run hotel within the town of Lakki making all projects and the port (where new refugees arrive) within a walking distance. There are local resources for everything you would need including shops, restaurants, pharmacy, and (hoping it won't be needed!) but hospital in case of emergencies.

While we're staying in a hotel amenities on the island are very basic please keep this in mind, we're not staying in a four seasons but a small hotel run by a local Greek family so our money can further support the suffering community that helps the refugees coming to their shores.

 

Package Cost:

We're still working out the final cost but it will be in and around £600 we had quoted. If we ask to you to call and book your flight directly with the airline (we will reserve you will just pass along your sensitive info) then we will adjust the cost accordingly.

ECHO 100 - A new support centre for Adults http://echo100plus.com/en
Pipka - The family and unaccompanied minors housing and learning centre(run by locals on the island)
