The team of IHA is located just outside of Thessaloniki. We have two main projects: Our Community Center near Camp Lagadikia and our warehouse. Our overall approach of the two projects is needs-based and flexible.
The Community Center ist the main part of our project where most volunteers are working. It consists of a Free Shop for the unregistered residents, regular community activities such as workshops and leisure activities, a girl's and women's space, a child friendly space and English and Greek classes . The aim of the Community Center is to offer the residents a place to come together outside of the camp, to enjoy themselves, get access to information and education, on top of providing them with essential items such as food and hygiene articles. As a general volunteer for the Community Centre you will be helping out with different tasks according to your skills and interest e.g. working in our CFS (Child friendly space), being a English teaching assistent, doing fitness or other sports activities or doing craft workshops. There is a lot of room for creativity :-)
The other (smaller) part of our project is our warehouse, which serves as a logistical hub for humanitarian aid, benefitting thousands of refugees in Northern Greece. We source supplies locally and receive aid deliveries from abroad from here. The supplies are stocked in the warehouse and distributed by our volunteer team and partner organisations.
We are looking for flexible, committed and motivated volunteers to help mainly with our Community Centre over winter. Accomodation in our volunteer flat is available for a small one-time contribution.
