Thank you for Joining the Movement to Support Indigo Volunteers

Since 2017, we have been working tirelessly, placing over 4,500 volunteers across 11 countries, helping provide food and shelter to thousands of displaced people along the European migration route.

And while we’re committed to getting vital helpers to projects - all fee-free - we need to cover our own running costs.

Help us raise funds to continue providing vital support to refugees.

What do we need funds for?

While for many of us winter means getting together with loved ones, holidays and the possibility of fun in the snow, for refugees across Europe, it’s a different story.

 

Freezing temperatures and a lack of decent food and shelter mean refugees face HUGE challenges during the winter.

 

Indigo’s partners and volunteers act as a lifeline during this perilous period: from distributing blankets and warm clothing to hot meals and essential medical care, our dedicated volunteers work day and night to support vulnerable people through the toughest season of the year.

But there is a problem. 

The humanitarian sector is having an incredibly tough time at the moment: due to a lack of funding and a shortage of volunteers, our charity partners are increasingly struggling to get support where it is needed most. 

 

At Indigo, we are dedicated to ethically supporting our partners with skilled volunteers, expertise and resources that help them create a meaningful impact. 

By choosing to support Indigo, your donations will help refugees access:

Blankets and warm clothing
to protect against the cold
Hot food, and shelter
from freezing temperatures
Safe spaces
for women and children
Legal aid
throughout their journey

Our impact is not just numbers

Whilst summarising our impact in numbers makes sense, it's worth looking beyond that. 

 

For every 1 day we worked in 2023, we arranged 89 days worth of volunteering. 

 

This means that every single day, we arranged 89 more days where:

  • refugees had access to clothing, blankets, and shelter. 

  • refugees had someone to talk to, and could have their voices heard.

  • children had a safe space to play, and be a child again. 

  • pregnant and new mothers could access help.

  • refugees could access showers and wash their clothes.

  • refugees could eat hot, nutritious meals.

  • separated families could stay in touch through wifi centres.

Donate to Indigo today to be part of something meaningful.
