Ιn a generalized financial crisis that touches all of us, the answer of the state should be solidarity and well planned activities, without leaving anyone without protection. Something that we don’t see it is the case.

We join our voices with this initiative too and we express our grave concern about the forthcoming eviction of 8,300 recognized refugees from the accommodation projects in Greece.

We are open!

Our doors in Θάλασσα Αλληλεγγύης – Thalassa of Solidarity are open again with a new weekly timetable, respecting all the existing measures (use of face masks and gloves when necessary, distancing, washing hands, cleaning the lab, up to 4 persons maximum at any given time into the lab, etc.)!

WEEKLY PROGRAM STARTING 12th OF MAY:

Monday 19.00-21.00 Tuesday 10.00-13.00
Wednesday 19.00 – 21.00
Thursday 10.00-13.00
Every second Saturday : 13.00 – 15.00

You can always contact us via our facebook page Facebook and send us an email at info@thalassa-solidarity

For the moment we are running our own Fabric Facemask Project!

* If you want a mask, come and visit us and we can make one together, with a small contribution for the running costs of the workshop, or by donating sewing materials (cotton fabrics, threads, elastic bands, etc.)

** a number of masks will be given to cover the needs of those who are in need and cannot afford it.

*** Extra project: after communication with the Housing program for asylum seekers in Crete, #Estia, trainees and beneficiaries will learn how to make fabric face masks that will be given to the families of the program and wherever else there is a need!

No One is Alone!

We have started today at Thalassa of Solidarity the distribution of basic food stuffs, fruits and veggies, cleaning and personal hygiene items to families that are starting to face serious problems of access to basic commodities.

We are in touch with our students, the migrant communities and solidarity groups to monitor needs and distribute wherever needed.

We will soon let you know about these needs and how you could contribute, if needed, bearing always in mind the measures in place to break the transmission chains of the COVID-19 virus.

COURSES POSTPONED!

Due to the urgent measures for the protection of all of us from the coronavirus (COVID-19), Θάλασσα Αλληλεγγύης – Thalassa of Solidarity will remain closed from the 11th of March 2020. Health is the most important issue for students, volunteers, all of us!

You can communicate with us via email at info@thalassa-solidarity.org and visit our pages at Facebook @ThalassaSolidarity and Instagram @ThalassaSolidarity for updates but also to check our handicrafts!

And if you would like to have some, let us know!

Let’s not forget the refugees here in Heraklion, Crete but also at the camps around Greece; the migrant workers; and all those around us that they are having less access to information or do not have the capacity and the means to protect and sustain themselves and their loved ones!

We live, learn, work, dream, take care, stay health, together!
