Europe Refugee Crisis 2015: The World Federation and CoEJ partner to help refugees arriving on Europe’s shores

Posted on Mon, 2015-09-14 14:44

In 2015, more than 411,000 refugees have fled to Europe on unseaworthy boats and dinghies. More than 2,800 refugees have died or are missing. These refugees are fleeing war, violence and persecution in their country of origin. 53% of these refugees are from Syria. Europe is suffering from the worst refugee crises since World War II. As a community, we have an obligation to help in whatever way can towards alleviating this dire situation. We need your help and need it fast.

The World Federation in partnership with the Council of European Jamaats (CoEJ) is launching the EUROPE REFUGEE CRISIS APPEAL to raise funds to deliver urgently needed humanitarian aid to the thousands of refugees seeking asylum in Europe. To begin with, items such as food, medicine and hygiene kits are among the many items urgently needed and your donation will allow us to provide these and other essentials. We urge community members and schools to organize fundraising drives to help the refugee families. 

In addition to financial support, we need your help to: 

1. Volunteer your time – We are looking for volunteers to travel within Europe to distribute aid to refugees.  If you are interested or for more information, please contact the CoEJ office (London, UK):

· Email: secretariat@coej.org

· Phone: +020 8696 5200

2. Contact, write or email your MP urging him/her provide more support for the refugees

Please stay tuned for further updates on our humanitarian efforts in Europe.

For more information, please email relief@world-federation.org
