Dunkerque (France)


Between January 9th and 14th two teams went to the Dunkerque. At this unofficial

camp numerous people were desperately housing in devastated  tents….


With the support of financial aids were

we able to purchase foodstuff but also

gas cylinders which were being distributed. Food was being prepared

in the camp kitchen and we have

supplied all sorts of individual help,

as we saw fit.

3. Convoy

Sentijl (Slovenia)


In February we were able to organize yet another convoy of super motivated volunteers. 

A team went to Sentijl on the Slovenian-Austrian boarder. They were supposed to help in the camp, however due to the push-backs and closed boards they found the camps deserted (empty). So they continued their journey to Zagreb to join the another relief organization "Are you Syrious". Our team participated on logistic tasks such as preparing containers with all sorts of donations; clothes, shoes and other material. This container was eventually sent to Greece. 

18.02. - 25.02.2016

3. Convoy

Chios (Grece)


On February 18th 7 volunteers set off by plane the Greece, more specifically the Island of Chios. This team had been accredited by the local organization " “Chios Eastern Shore Rescue Team“ (CESRT).


At this moment in time Chios is the destination of numerous refugee vessels,  these arrivals will need to be supported with the most elementary stuff. Besides Night-partols, Spotting the "Luxembourg Team" also assisted the local population, who are slowly devastating and can't cope with this situation any longer. 


(which provided an opportunity for our Luxembourg….) Thereby our Luxembourg volunteers were able to get a general picture of the entire situation in Greece and in particular on the Island of Chios. (this Island)

The need for help remains huge, and Catch a Smile has decided to continue to financially support the various (local) Organisations at site.
