Sometimes purchasing much needed items on the island is just not possible for us. So we still rely heavily on items being sent to us from abroad. Please take a look at the items on our urgent needs list to see if you can help out!


On the customs form, write ‘for humanitarian aid’ and ‘secondhand goods’.

Bringing donations with you to Samos?

Some international airlines will allow you to check-in one piece of luggage containing donated goods above the usual luggage limit, for no extra fee. But always check with them in advance. We have, however, prepared a document which you can send an airline requesting extra charity luggage allowance. Please send us a message to request this (or if you have any queries), and we can personalise it to your flight and airline.

Domestic airlines in Greece usually will charge you for taking extra luggage. As an alternative to flying, you could take the ferry service from Athens to Samos, enabling you to take as much extra luggage as you like. Here is the link to the ferry service.
