About us

A team of humanitarian volunteers based between the UK and Greece. Between us, we have volunteered with refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Hungary, Serbia, Palestine, Calais, Lesvos and Greece.

Many remote camps are unsafe for children/ vulnerable families with snakes, wild boars, scorpions, and reports of kidnappings. This undeniable need created our temporary housing project in Greece.

Once Goodwill Caravan adopt a vulnerable family's case file we do not leave them until they are safely handed over to UNHCR housing or are legally flown out of Greece with the 'Family Relocation Program', to be reunited with family members in Europe etc.

Goodwill Caravan look after the families we support, and help enable and empower them to learn skills to help them be functional members of society in Greece or the countries they are relocated to.

Our Ethos: Goodwill Caravan operate under moral compass that is driven by passion, belief in humanity and love for all. We have zero tolerance for discrimination and choose our volunteers based on these values.

Process:

*Assess/Identify vulnerable refugee families (i.e.

pregnant women, babies/ children, disabled families living on streets or camps where children may be at risk).

*Provide temporary accommodation /food/water/free medical access

*Regular mass distributions of 1000 meals for homeless refugees as well as any homeless person we come across. Mass distributions cover newly founded abodes and squats where families have no food.

*Asylum support.

*Samah Fund - support in completion of studies for young refugees

*Facilitation access to free language classes

*Refugee accessories project to teach children and mothers in our temp housing project new skills and teach them a trade to help empower them to help themselves, and help raise funds through sales for their rent/food (more sustainable).
