Benefit Dinner for Refugees in Lesvos Greece

pikpa_lesvos_greeceMonday October 12th 2015, Benefit Dinner for Refugees in Lesvos Greece, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm

Refugees are people fleeing violence, persecution and death. The journey may involve risking these things too. The destination should not.
During the last months the volumes of refugees coming to Lesvos has raised to around 1500 daily. State, European or other NGO initiatives are either desperately poor or non-existing. Local volunteers along with many coming from abroad are trying to provide help concerning basic needs of the refugees like shelter, food, clothing and medical care.
This benefit dinner aims to provide the donations to PIKPA in Lesvos, which is a squatted old camping area run only by volunteers. Currently in this self-organized camp there are around 160 refugees living in tents and wooden dorms. There is a grassroots group called “The village of all together” doing its best to host as many possible in this place. Still, many crucial needs need to be covered.
Here is the online donation campaign for those who can’t make it on Wednesday and details about where the money go:

Volkseten Vegazulu is a people’s kitchen, every monday and thursday, 7pm, vegan food for 4€ or donation. All benefits go for social & political struggles. No reservation.

We’re always looking for cooks. Any help is welcome in the kitchen. Experience not required. Enjoying it is a must.
