Help them change their story

The situation and the number of people living in poverty, conflict areas, natural disasters, fleeding their homes is unfortunately changing and growing daily, so I will not state any numbers here. Please check this pages for more up-to-date info about refugee crisis:

Also NGO´s working around Europe Help Refugees UK, Sea Watch , Refugees4Refugees, Lighthouse Relief, SOS MEDITERRANEE, No name kitchen

What can we do to help?

1.Volunteer on the field, please check Indigo or specific organization and fields you would like to work and help in. You help is especially needed if you have valuable skills. From medical, law, languages, captains, officers, engineers, ship electricians and IT specialists …

There are a lot of local NGO´s that need help. You can even volunteer just one day per week in your own town and make a big difference. Slovenia: Prostovoljstvo.org

2. Donate money to an NGO´s that works on the field. You can donate to Collective Aid through my GoFundme

Other organizations I would be happy to support with my €:

Collective Aid if you want to make a direct donation, Help Refugees UK, Sea Watch , Refugees4Refugees, Lighthouse Relief, SOS MEDITERRANEE, No name kitchen, ….

3. Donate items

There is a constant need for men’s S/M clothing, shoes, hygiene products, underwear, blankets, tents… If you would like to donate any new or used items you can let me know and we can figure it out together which organization would need those items the most or where would it be the easiest to bring or to ship them.

4. Buy some of the items on my My Kleiderkreisel   and Used Goods For Good Use Instagram page. I selected some nice clothes for you. Clothes I would be happy to find and buy in a thrift shop. So take a look, maybe there is something for you too. All proceeds will be donated to NGO´s.

5. Share and post about it on your social media. We need to talk about it and make people aware of the situation. And we need to make countries accountable for any border violence and situation on refugee camps (or the lack of them).


If you want to look how a volunteer day looks like. I have been volunteering with amazing Collective aid NGO for 2 months in 2019. In July 2019 I worked as NFI (non-food items) coordinator in Serbia. Here is my video that shows some of the work we did:

Thank you for choosing kindness. And if you have any question about anything written above, leave a comment or say hi through the contact form or email … or social media…you know how it goes.
