Homes for Refugee Children

Homes for Refugee Children

In December of 2016, Team Humanity and Charity United joined forces on a new refugee aid project.

We are giving refugee families with children the opportunity to move out of cold, dirty, inhuman places, into warm and safe rooms in a community home in Greece. They can remain there while their asylum applications are processed.

Our home contains bedrooms, a common kitchen and dining area, bathrooms, a school room, and room for children to play.  It is a warm, friendly, welcoming and safe environment.  We currently house children, pregnant women, single mothers, fathers, and the elderly.

Our Stories

Team Humanity is known all over the world for their work saving lives at sea.  Salam has personally rescued over 25,000 people from the sea alone (not including shore rescues) over a period of five months. You can learn more about his work here:
