About Us

Because every child

deserves hope & a future

Goodwill Caravan is non-profit Humanitarian Charity that covers refugee protection projects  including  shelter, food, legal and medical support in the UK and Greece. We are registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (registration no 1176314).

We help vulnerable refugee families, orphans, detained unaccompanied children

We help vulnerable refugee families, orphans, detained unaccompanied children at risk of organ trade, trafficking and kidnappings if left in detention centres, prisons or homeless on arrival to the Greek islands, we also conduct homeless aid distributions to help local populations including Greek nationals.

Goodwill Caravan supports hundreds of refugees in our shelter projects for vulnerable refugee families. We run sustainable educational and production projects. Our refugee aid trips continue and we monitor families from UK and have people on the ground from several organisations who work hand in hand for continuity of care.

Many remote camps are unsafe for children/ vulnerable families with snakes, wild boars, scorpions, and reports of kidnappings. This undeniable need created our temporary housing project in Greece.

Once Goodwill Caravan adopt a vulnerable family’s case file we do not leave them until they are safely handed over to UNHCR housing or are legally flown out of Greece with the ‘Family Relocation Program’, to be reunited with family members in Europe etc.

Goodwill Caravan look after the families we support, and help enable and empower them to learn skills to help them be functional members of society in Greece or the countries they are relocated to.

Step 1: Assess & Identify the vulnerable

We work directly with pregnant women, infants and disabled families living on streets or camps where children may be at risk.

Step 2: Provide Shelter

We provide temporary accommodation /food/water/free medical access for the vulnerable, as well as helping them with legal support they may need.

Step 3: Helping integrate

We then support with integration, and help facilitate access to free language classes. Our 'Refugee Accessories' project gives children and mothers in our temporary housing project new skills as well as teaching trades that will empower them to help themselves.
