The help CRR provides is currently concentrated on the Greek islands. Our main activities take place in Lesvos, but has expended to Samos and Chios. The help we provide consists in organizing group trips (volunteers) and organizing aid transports from the Netherlands, coordinated with local partners.
In 2020 CRR will expand its mission activities to the island of Chios. We will inform you about this on this site and via social media.
Chios is located just off the Turkish coast between the islands of Samos and Lesbos. The island has an area of 325 square miles, the sixth largest Greek island, and has about 50,000 inhabitants. Many live in the south of the island and are engaged in the production of mastic. This material comes from the special mastic trees that are only found in a few places in the world.
On the island you will find many monuments and historical places and despite all Chios has not yet been discovered by mass tourism. Chios has beautiful beaches, beautiful nature and cozy villages that give the impression that time has stood still.
Camp Vial, more info will follow.
