VluchtBus Benefit

Thursday February 4th 2016, VluchtBus Benefit, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

Vluchtbus_Chios_3VluchtBus is a solidarity bus that runs to several border areas to support refugees. They are currently out in Chios, Greece working with refugees to provide food and other supplies. They are also busy with an autonomous centre that has been squatted and are in the process of fixing it up. The refugee crisis at the moment means demand is very high and that their limited funds are running out quick. The local NGO’s and GO’s have supplies to hand out and to help refugees at the border, but due to the tense situation and their protocols, they are not willing to do it themselves. VluchtBus helped local private initiatives to hand out these supplies. Come on down to Joe’s Garage on Thursday 4th for some top notch dinner as every penny helps or if you can donate here are the banking details: Bank account name: Vluchtbus, account no: NL06 INGB 0007 1702 49  https://vluchtbusweb.noblogs.org
