The living conditions of refugees in Southern Europe are horrible. Not just in the overcrowded camps on the Greek islands but also on the mainland. Every day we see people who either just arrived in Greece or who have been stuck in inhumane conditions for months or years. That’s why we are working in Greece. We want to provide these people with medical care.
In our clinics in all three locations we treat approx. 1800 patients each month. We just help! But we can’t do this without your support! We’re an independent volunteer-run and donations-based NGO. All of our projects are made possible through donations (in funds, time and goods) from our volunteers, individual donors and partners.
Even small donations help!
BECOME A MVI TEAMER!
Can you spare 1 EUR per month to make a difference? Join our team and together with the help of many you can support us on a monthly basis to keep our projects in Greece and beyond running!
A bottle of scabies treatment costs 9 EUR and is sufficient for 4 people. With your donation we can treat a full family.
Sometime a plaster heals more than just the cut underneath. It also means that someone sees you, cares about you and takes time to listen. With 15 € we can refill our stock of bandages and plasters each week in one of our clinics!
For people on the move or those living on the streets, it is impossible to keep the wounds clean. The most commonly treated injuries in our clinics in Greece are infected wounds, which is a very painful and dangerous condition. A dose of antibiotics costs 5 € / a full treatment of 10 doses is 50 €.
NEW GLASSES – NEW FOCUS
Long journeys, fights and violent push-backs at the border frequently result in broken glasses that cannot be fixed anymore. Your donations will give us an opportunity to send the patients to an eye doctor and to purchase new glasses for them.
ON THE ROAD!
With 100 EUR we can buy petrol for a full tank in our RTW, the big ambulance we drive in Thessaloniki to run our daily clinics in the camp and on the street.
PAY MY RENT!
In April 2019, we opened a little clinic focusing on physiotherapy and massage only. It is located directly opposite the Moria Camp on Lesvos. The location is perfect and will save some long walks for our patients. The first 3 months of rent are covered, but to run it on a long-term basis, we need your help!
I DO NOT GET IT!
Without the daily support of our interpreters from the refugee community we would not be able to do what we are doing. Your donation will enable us to provide one of them with a monthly payment and will award this important work.
SPONSOR OUR COORDINATOR!
To stabilise our projects we would like to support the volunteers who have made a long-term commitment and taken over the responsible role as a team coordinator on the ground with a monthly payment to cover their living costs. Do you want to become a sponsor for one of our locations?
