Every single donation counts!

If you would like to make an earmarked donation, please indicate the respective project under "Purpose of use" in your transfer. Your donation will then be used exclusively for this purpose.

The Caravan of Humanity asks you for donations for our aid projects in Greece, Bosnia, Italy, Syria and Lebanon!

As long as there is no meaningful humane policy, we have the responsibility to set a sign of humanity and to pass on some of our prosperity.

100% of the monetary donations are forwarded to the people in need on site and used for food, medicine, school materials, etc. or forwarded to local NGOs on site.

Details of where the donations are going can be found below in our cost transparency :
