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.

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.
