I recently had the opportunity to travel to an orphanage in Belize with a friend’s non-profit organization. [See the post here] Our next “voluntourist” opportunity with HOPEWorldwide was to the refugee camps in Greece. This was such an eye opening experience. We traveled and helped at a couple different camps, donated clothing and resources, and even brought a Magician to perform and help create stuffed animals for the children.
The refugee crisis is so tremendously widespread and so numerous it is near-daunting to consider how to best assist these people in need. However, any contribution of time, of money, or of support helps and ultimately goes to care for a human-being in need.
