We're an independent group of volunteers responding to the refugee crisis. 

Samos Volunteers provides help and support to refugees and asylum-seekers living in the camp and shelters on Samos, by instilling a sense of normality, combatting boredom, and empowering people while they wait for their asylum to be processed. We endeavour to do this by identifying and fulfilling the needs of new arrivals and vulnerable people, and sustaining informal educational activities and recreational projects for both children and adults.


Help us from abroad.

Samos Volunteers is entirely funded by private donations. You can donate money, send us items that we cannot easily buy on the island, host a fundraiser, or become an SV ambassador! 

A call for volunteers!

We need your help! Can you offer your time and skills? 

Samos Volunteers are welcoming refugees and asylum-seekers from the camp and shelters around Vathy to our educational and recreational programme. We are looking for support through time, donations, and sharing ideas.
