We thank you for contacting us, and offering your time as a volunteer.
Since September 2015, the NGO Remar has been helping the thousands of Syrian refugees fleeing their country. Since then, it has distributed more than 7,000 million portions of food and have installed with its own means six tents of more than 100 square meters equipped with heating and equipped to accommodate refugee families, giving them hot food and clothing. Last year, the REMAR NGO launched the refugee assistance plan within the S.O.S. REMAR program created to give an immediate response to the humanitarian emergencies that are occurring around the world.

The opening of positions of immediate help in countries from Central Europe to the people fleeing the various wars that shake the Arab countries and more to those from Syria has been a shock and the first step within this specific aid program. Tents, emergency kitchens, hygienic services, housing tents with beds and even nurseries in which give a decent attention to all who come asking for help forms part of the material contingent.

The points where we operate: Serbia, Mytilene Island of Lesbos (Moria camp), Athens (Malakasa camp).

CAMP OF MORIA, LESBOS MITILENE

Remar SOS reopens its emergency protocol in the city of Lesbos where more than 3,700 refugees are being served daily, giving them breakfast, lunch and dinner. The arrival of refugees in the Moria camp in Mytilene, Lesbos, has continued without stop for two years, but has ceased to be on the main European media. Between 5,000 and 6,000 refugees, men women and children of different nationalities and cultures, are crowded together in a camp with a capacity for 2,300 people, with new ones arriving every day. Some of them have been there for more than a year and a half, without looking for any future option, hoping to pass the time, just surviving.

The sick are cared for, free service is provided to take the people with serious needs to the hospital, play and entertainment activities are carried out for the little ones, primary attention to the new arrivals, guidance and emotional support.

CAMP OF MALAKASA, ATHENS

Malakasa is a camp that opened in March 2016 after the closure of borders. The Remar SOS association has been giving the necessary help there since the first day, and have done for almost two years and does numerous activities, which are changing based on the needs of the field.

Malakasa deals with:
Daily distribution of clothing and other equipment,
Tea, soup, cookies and fruit salad.
Recent activity; container cleaning: When many leave and new ones arrive, in Remar we want these new families to find a new, clean and ready to live home, that's why we have committed ourselves to the general cleaning of the 204 container-houses every time someone marches . An average of 2/3 containers are cleaned per day with a team of 3 people.
Soccer: Every day trainings and games from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Cinema: 2 days a week two movies a day.
In addition, small activities are done with children, parties, all kinds of equipment are distributed as needed, children are accompanied in two vehicles when they do activities outside the field and long journeys etc.

SERBIA CAMP

The Serbian camp was one of the first points where Remar was mobilized as it was the first country on the Balkan route where the registration and fingerprinting of all the arriving refugees was taken. Seeing the great need and the circumstances in which thousands of people arrived, the Remar S.O.S protocol began in Serbia, where tents were installed offering humanitarian aid to all the refugees arriving.

In this camp Remar volunteers permanently distribute soup, hot tea, cookies and fruit, as well as clothes (mainly socks and hats, since many refugees arrive soaked and very cold). Activities are also carried out with the children since they represent more than half of the refugees in the field. They also spend time talking with those who go through their tents, to meet them, see the situation of each one, providing support and psychological help.

HOW CAN I HELP?

Food and winter clothing are scarce and the REMAR pantries are being emptied with the great need; so donating food, clothing, winter clothing, blankets and financial contributions to help is requested to cover the container shipments, volunteer trips and fuel purchases.
