The Lesvos Refugee Project was created in August 2015 when the need was urgent for international volunteers and support groups to form, in the absence of the world-at-large making a viable relief plan.
Since that time, with generous donations, the LRP has worked with volunteer teams on Lesvos and throughout Greece providing emergency supplies to keep refugees alive and safe upon their arrival and while they apply for asylum.
100% of donations have applied towards this effort. The Lesvos Refugee Project is a focus of ArtLife Society, a recognized 501.c3 charitable organization based in Iowa, USA. All donations are tax deductible.
Supplies are purchased in Greece, thereby stimulating the Greek economy, and sent directly to humanitarian efforts on Lesvos and refugee camps throughout Greece. By keeping routine communication with reliable contacts, accurate supply needs can be assessed, ordered and dispersed quickly.
