GAiN: Greece Refugee Care Summer Mission

In recent years, news broadcasts have been filled with stories of violence in the Middle East — especially Syria — and of the resulting refugee crisis. Syrian men, women, and children flee from their homes, jobs, and friends, hoping to escape war and poverty. More than 1 million refugees traveled through Turkey, piled into small, overcrowded rubber boats, and faced the dangerous journey across the Aegean Sea to the shores of Greece. They hoped to pass through the islands and continue into Europe.

However, most European countries have closed their borders leaving the refugees trapped in camps — unable to travel to a new destination and powerless to return home.

You can help meet physical needs and show the kindness of Jesus to struggling refugees by traveling with GAiN® to a camp in Greece.

You will serve refugees by distributing aid such as blankets or food or doing chores in the camp. Your presence and help will show refugees that they are loved and cared for.

Participants on this trip must be 18 years or older to serve in the camp and participants must be able to work on their feet eight hours at a time.

The listed trip cost is an estimate. Final trip costs will be determined once all applications are received.
