RESPOND prides itself on facilitating collaborations between aid operations on the ground, thereby enhancing the impact humanitarian assistance has on the lives of displaced people.
January 2017 – August 2017
RESPOND assisted with the refurbishment of 17 self-contained apartments for vulnerable refugee families and the construction of a social cafe and children’s safe space.
This project identified the most vulnerable refugees in a camp setting and provided them with dignity, safety and support in permanent housing. RESPOND also provided tools and training, enabling children’s bikes to be reconditioned.
THE WORLDWIDE TRIBE
December 2016 – January 2017
RESPOND assisted a refugee day centre, whereby refugees sought respite from camp conditions, by constructing storage units in the warehouse.
RESPOND also logistically coordinated the delivery of Christmas presents to refugee children.
TRUCKSHOP (FREEDOM OF CHOICE)
We have worked alongside TruckShop in Thessaloniki.
There was collaboration on many projects, including the TruckShop Free Social Store located in central Thessaloniki.
HUMANS FOR HUMANITY
RESPOND completed the instillation of a roof at Humans 4 Humanity community center, enabling visitors to enjoy outside activities with protection from the sun.
Internal refurbishment was conducted in order to improve the utilization of the space.
ONE HAPPY FAMILY
RESPOND refurbished the Doc Mobile clinic inside Lesbos’ One Happy Family community center, a critical aspect of the center that provides fundamental services accessible to all refugees on the island – including medical care, provision of food, education and physical exercise.
We have worked alongside 10:10 in creating solar power charging stations for use by refugees in camps as well as a range of other applications of solar technology.
We are incredibly appreciative of PINGTRON’s continuous support.
They have kindly loaned us two vehicles and have installed PINGTRON in refugee communities.
