Fundraising is always one of our top priorities
Action From Switzerland (AfS) is an independent, non-profit organisation funded entirely by private donations and run by non-salaried volunteers. This ensures that your donations go directly towards helping refugees in both Greece and in Switzerland and allows a fast response to the ever-changing situation.
On Chios, we ensure that women and girls have a safe space and receive educational and psycho-social support at the Athena Centre for Women. We also serve extra vulnerable individuals, such as victims of sexual violence, pregnant women, single parents, solitary women, the elderly, the disabled and unaccompanied minors. Our work in Switzerland focuses on integration events involving minors and legal support for those seeking asylum in the country.
We welcome individual or group fundraising efforts on behalf of Action from Switzerland. Examples of past efforts and ideas include the following:
- organise a quiz night at a favourite restaurant or pub
- set up an art fundraiser
- sell your art online or donate it to us to see for fundraising purposes
- run a marathon
- set up a crowdfunding page to raise donations in lieu of birthday or other presents
Other ideas are also welcome – no effort is too small. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can provide you with support in your fundraising efforts. Thank you for your support.
