A day as a volunteer from 10am-12pm: playtime, UNHCR, free ‘shop’ stock and kettles
Here is John’s second update of the day
Next a morning meeting with UNHCR representative for Refugee Camp Alexandreia. We work very closely with UNHCR we try to take away from them the burdens of the daily issues that we can deal with freeing them up for the bigger issues of the over 50,000 Refugees in Greece and in the case of our local UNHCR allowing them more time for the 3 camps they are responsible for.
Next to the “free shop” to check the daily deliveries that are paid for by refugeesupporteu.com before the shop opens today 200 ltrs of Milk, 200kgs of Sugar. 11 am shop opens for 2 hours for tent rows C and D
Next my daily walk round camp to say “hello” and listen to any problems while our amazing volunteers look after the shop. The 200 new kettles we distributed and we’re donated by BRIDGE2 Guernsey are proving a big hit.
