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

Samos Volunteers supports and empowers refugees and asylum-seekers living on the island of Samos. We do this through informal education and recreational projects for children and adults. We also attempt to meet pressing sanitary needs with our laundry station.


Support us

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

Displaced Dishes

Displaced Dishes is a compact, new cookbook featuring 30 delicious recipes from around the world. All the recipes were contributed by residents of a single refugee camp on Samos Island, Greece. 100% of the profit from the sale of this book will go towards providing services for displaced people living in the Samos Refugee Camp.
