About this campaign

Thanks for visiting my page!
-
I was fortunate enough to be involved with Thighs of Steel for the first time last year cycling from Sofia to Athens and experiencing first hand the incredible work the money raised contributes to helping refugees arriving in Greece.
-
To give an example I met a Pakistani man I'll keep anonymous for the purpose of this who had fled Pakistan fearing further persecution. Four years ago he had suffered kidnap and torture at the hands of the community in which he lived for his atheist views. He travelled on foot to Athens where he was denied asylum as Pakistan is not deemed an oppressive regime in the eyes of the EU. Also being an unaccompanied male puts him at the bottom of the priority list. He is now forced to live illegally, everyday fearing capture and deportation by the authorities.
-
This is one example of thousands of refugees in a hopeless situation that shows no sign of resolving any time soon.
-
Despite the challenges he faces personally he volunteers at Khora helping other refugees in any way he can.
-
No one deserves to be in this situation. Yet those of us born in a certain place at a certain time have no other choice.
-
Any donation big or small will help to reset the balance, giving immediate support and opportunity to those appealing to Europe for help and humanity.
-
Thanks so much for reading this far and considering donation!
-
Please get in touch with any questions regarding this organisation or others I've been involved with.

Love Tom
