  • Happy people do good things
    „Happy people do good things“ – as simple as it is, that’s what I’ve learned at the OHF. And it is a challenge to spread happiness in a context where crimes against humanity caused by the European closed-doors policy become the most visible. Deportations, inhuman conditions in the camps, a lack of perspective – all these EU-constructions are not […]

"Equality, trust, home for everyone..." These are only some results of a task we had to do yesterday. The entire team of helpers, coordination team and volunteers and the partners of OHF attended a workshop on our Community Center and its future. The entire day we worked on what is good at OHF and what we want to keep and as well on which parts can be improved and how we would like to do it.
Every single voice is important, for that we made sure that enough translators attended.
It was really amazing how many good ideas, such as improving daily services and trying to make the OHF more of a training center, were shared.

During the Workshop breaks we found time to hang out together: precious moments for the whole team because during the daily business we often don't find time to really either get to know each other more or just spend time together. We ended the day with a group picture (coming soon :)) and we had an amazing barbecue, dance and laughter.

Thanks to the whole organisation team of this workshop, thank you Maya! "Check out" 🙂

Attika Human Support is in Danger...

Without this team and the amazing people working in Attika, the One Happy Family Community Center would not have survived, last summer...and until now, Attika is the biggest supplier of clothes for our boutique and items for our hygienic mini-market.

Without Attika, our work would not be possible. Please support!

#togetherforthebetter #Lesvos #Greece #Volunteerrevolution #RefugeesGRCritical funding situation in Attika warehouse!!!

Unfortunately, Attika is facing a crisis connected to the lack of funding! We are urgently searching for the donors who would be willing to support Attika project!!!

Attika is critical link in the chain of support on Lesvos. If we can't keep Attika operating, most of the NGO's on the island will have a problems to keep their projects running... 🙁 🙁 🙁

We support:

- asylum seekers on Lesvos

- over 25 NGOs' located on the island who - without the support of independent warehouse - will face lots of difficulties to operate their own projects

- Chios NGO's and Vial camp

- local institutions as elderly houses, hospitals...

- poor locals - individuals

- night shifts on Campfire - spotting and landing boats

Attika as well works as emergency team in case of riots and unrests in Moria - Attika can be transformed to emergency camp for 400 people.

The warehouse has been operating over the 2 years now... PLEASE, HELP US TO REACH THE THIRD!!!

If you are interested in funding proposal and complete budget, send us a message!

Difficult days are coming to us but we still believe we can go through together... Please, don't leave us alone

Full of hope,
