Greece, September - December 2018
In Northern Greece many refugees are still stuck and more arrive daily. Some of them live in containers or in tent camps. Winter and with it the cold will come soon. Therefore we collected knitted caps for every age and could provide for hundreds of warm ears.

Our StrickWärme team flew to Jordan at the end of April 2018 and visited the refugee camp al-Za'atari and the "Happiness Again" centre for traumatised children in Amman.With this trip we want to draw attention to the psychological situation of many fled children and help them. We will plan one (or more) exhibition(s) in Switzerland with children's drawings, photographs and background information. We are currently organising the exhibition!

Together with the Kinderhilfswerk Noah StrickWärme was able to repair a school in northern Syria. The Marwan School provided space for 500 boys aged 12-15 before being damaged by bombardments.

In addition, StrickWärme contributed 850 self-knitted caps to the transport.

Our team travelled to Como, on the Swiss-Italian border, to hand over urgently needed aid to a small church charity . In Como we helped Don Giusto's team with material and financial support to overcome the difficult situation. For months, his team had been caring for hundreds of refugees, mainly from African countries. Since the Swiss border was closed to many people and the border guards regularly gave questionable directions, many people were stranded in Como.

Our team visiting the refugee camp Calais: The relief organisation Care4Calais received urgently needed funds for gas bottles.
