The Lesvos Refugee Project was created in August 2015 when the need for informal willing volunteers and support groups formed long before NGO’s, and the world-at-large, made a viable relief plan.
Since that time, with generous donations, the LRP has worked with volunteer teams on Lesvos providing emergency supplies to keep refugees alive and safe upon their arrival and while they remain on the island.
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 the northern coast, between Molyvos and Skala Skyminea. By keeping routine communication with known contacts on the island, accurate supply needs can be assessed, ordered and dispersed quickly.
