We, the students of Connecticut have set out to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief to refugees in Greece as well as aid resettled families within Connecticut.
Through the support of the community, item and monetary donations are collected and distributed to those in need.
A large component of the Anchor mission is human interaction; our physical presence on scene, whether in Greece or in Connecticut, allows us to lend the love and attention necessary in times of crisis.
A team of 28 spent two weeks in the Ritsona refugee camp, located in a wooded area an hour north of Athens, Greece. The team was able to fund the water system at the camp, assist in vulnerable cases and medical scenarios, help with the renovation of the prayer area, and contribute numerous items to tents.
