The international movement Salvation Army has reached out to Greek tourism professionals in an effort to secure temporary accommodation for refugees entering Greece on their journey to other European countries.
The Salvation Army is seeking to accommodate groups of refugees for a few days: from their arrival in Greece until they are supplied with the necessary documents and allowed to continue their journey to their final destination.
The Salvation Army is also in need of the following goods:
For children: pacifiers, diapers / nappies, socks, hats, baby sling (to carry the baby), babywipes, paracetamol for children, baby milk powder, water proof coats, winter clothes
For women: underwear, multi-purpose crème (travel size, e.g. nivea), sanitary towels (no tampons), shawls, socks, water proof coats, winter clothes
