Tree of Life started after visiting Athens at Christmas 2018. Among the overwhelming sorrow of all refugees, the harsh situation of refugee-women being pregnant -often unplanned and unwanted – hit us. We want to help some of these women to give birth in a human situation. We want to provide a safe environment for them, and help them on their journey to an independent life.
We currently rent an apartment in Athens. It houses two families, formerly living on the street. The woman of both families were pregnant and gave birth in december 2020. We are glad this could happen in a safe environment; now the families can give the necessary care and protection.
Apart from housing, we help the families in looking for sources of income. Basic needs (food, healthcare) are provided when necessary.
Donations can be done directly to our BANK account, NL15 BUNQ 2040 941681. An easy way of giving is also using this link (Payment by different means possible, including creditcard). This is the most cost-effective options.
In it’s meeeting of January 6th, the board has decided to liquidate the organization. Details of this decision can be requested at info–treeoflifeforrefugees.com.
