CRAG: Response to the refugee crisis in Greece
Thanks to all our supporters, CRAG (Charlbury Refugee Action Group) has raised over £17,000 over the last 12 months for refugee relief. All the money we have raised has been sent to organisations dedicated to alleviating conditions for refugees in Europe.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made the plight of refugees throughout the world even more drastic.
In particular, there is a desperate need of support on the island of Lesvos after the fires in the overcrowded Moria camp last week, leaving 13,000 people homeless.
The fires started hours after reports that 35 people had tested positive for Covid-19 at the camp. Since fleeing the blaze on Wednesday 9th September families have been sleeping in the fields and on the roads.
Now is the time to act.
