What we do in Greece, Serbia & Bosnia
indiGO Volunteers is responding to the refugee crisis predominantly in Greece but also in Serbia & Bosnia, with a coordination team based in Greece, who are in constant contact with grassroots projects and the wider community.
This Crisis Response Project looks to understand the volunteer needs of the the grassroots projects and connect them with independent volunteers looking for ways to help.
We work with over 40 grassroots projects that are filling gaps in basic aid, running community centres, mobile medical support, social support, education, goods distribution, providing legal advice and so much more.
By connecting and coordinating volunteer placements it enables the grassroots projects to spend less time organising and looking for volunteers and more time helping people affected by the continued crisis.
