About Refugee4Refugees

Twenty three year old Syrian refugee, Omar Alshakal, founded Refugee4Refugees because having fled war in Syria himself, he wanted to support other refugees going through the same journey. Alshakal sought to create an organisation that addresses the needs and concerns of refugees, while also encouraging other refugees to get involved in their work and take the lead in relief efforts.

R4R is based in Lesvos, providing humanitarian assistance to refugees arriving by boat. Additionally they provide support to people still living in Syria and Turkey. Clothes are being distributed to children living as refugees in this region. 

Plans for 2018

R4R is currently focusing on operating its warehouse near Moria camp which provides clothing during the winter months for families in Moria, to better address the needs of the refugees living there. The warehouse currently serves approximately 150 people daily! 

R4R also assists with boat spotting and arrivals on the south of Lesvos.

About us

Matching needs and offers.

Asterias-Starfish Foundation being on the refugees' crisis field for a long time, came face to face with emergency needs, lack of information and communication. Even now, when the flow is not so big, actually nobody knows the needs of the others. So many times, items are remaining in warehouses and refugees still need them. On the other hand, donors want to offer their help in this refugee crisis, but they cannot find where to channel this help.

We are launching this platform to help us to work more efficiently.  To let every organization have a clear view of the needs on the island of Lesvos. To give them access to funding when they haven't any, and give to the donors the full information they need, when they want to offer their help.

Let's work together, to cover the needs of this humanitarian crisis, through a transparent platform.
