Our work is carried out entirely by private donations, which go exclusively towards enabling us to support the refugees here in Samos. With funding, we are able to purchase educational equipment for teachers and our students, supplies for recreational activities and workshops, and equipment for DIY projects and building work. Whenever possible, we purchase vital items locally to avoid extensive delivery costs and contribute to the island’s economy.

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 email email@example.com to request this, 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.
