We are organizing our next mission to Greece for the end of September.
We are taking a van and truck from Mutonia to the camps near Thessaoniki. We will fill both with winter aid- clothes,blankets,shoes,which we have already collected and which are stored in Mutonia, aswell as taking over the cinema from CdD.
Cinema du Desert is proud to be part of the next expedition with S.A.F.E. In the first mission (June 2016) we filled up our cinema-truck with the goods donated and we went to Greece bringing with us not only the donations, but also a bit of fun and joy (thanx to Charlie Chaplin's "Modern Times"). The response of the people in front of our screen was amazing, its very difficult to explain but these people really need movies and moments to share... because all of this we decided to join S.A.F.E again and bring some more movies".
We will photograph and document our mission,meeting up with already estabished contacts within the refugee and volunteer communities.
We hope to have and give a better understanding of the conditions the people now face, aswell as delivering the donations we have collected and putting on the cinema in the camps.
For this we need to raise some funds...£2000 to get the van and truck from Italy to Thessaloniki.
Please can you help by giving a small donation, every little helps and it will all be going directly to where it is needed most.
