Journey Overview

Volunteers will partner with local churches in Thessaly to assist with their relief work. Following floods that have been described as 'biblical' in the central region of Greece, Thessaly, thousands of people have been displaced, left homeless, and/or lost their livelihoods as farms and shops were destroyed. We will be establishing a base in Trikala, Greece from which we will work to clean homes, help rebuild, provide food and clothing, and meet whatever other community needs we can. We anticipate having a presence in the region until after summer 2024.

This cost covers only accommodation, meals, and transport for ministries. It does not include airfare, visa, travel insurance, required vaccinations, and airport transfer. Charges may be incurred for late cancellation. Dates and costs may be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.
