After 9 months 'pending opening', Katsikas camp opened at the end of December and there are now 400 people there who have transferred from the islands. Unfortunately, there is next to no support or services for them.
There is some frustration at this so we need volunteers who can help to provide some calm, dignity and normality at this disruptive time for them. We run a mini-market, clothes boutiques and activities for the kids: http://www.refugeesupport.eu/projects/katsikas/
If you are available from 7 April please get in touch. You will be part of one of the country's leading volunteer groups with nearly 2 years experience in Greece. We have constantly improved how we work, all thanks to the great volunteers who have been part of the Refugee Support family.
You can read stories from the 500 or so volunteers, from nearly 40 nations, aged 15-79 years old, who have worked with us here: http://www.refugeesupport.eu/volunteer-stories/
