London Fire Risk Assessments is supporting a Greek charity – Attika. Attika operates a humanitarian warehouse hub that provides Non-Government Charities (NGO’s) with desperately needed supplies for the homeless and vulnerable refugees on the mainland and the Greek islands.

So why are we helping Attika – they are fighting for survival its as simple as that! The war in Ukraine and Palestine the environmental disasters all over the world and the energy crisis has captured the media attention resulting in the refugee crisis in Greece being forgotten.

What do Attika supply to NGO’s – from they central hub in Athens they supply food, hygiene products, mother and baby packs, nappies, coats, pushchairs, blankets, tents, sleeping bags and so much more.

What Attika needs to survivethey need donations! Donations have dried up and many NGO’s have already crashed, including FoodKind a wonderful charity that supplied a daily hot meal to the Malakasa refugee camp. That meal was probably the only one desperately hungry people had. If Attika do not get donations they too will crash and as a consequence so will many, many grass root NGO’s who rely on them.

What can you do – It is a lot to ask but they need funds. If you are a London based Company in the Fire Safety industry with a Greek connection or just a passion for Greece, then you could give a Company donation. If you are a person who just sees the desperation in the country and you would love to help then please click here or go to  and help the forgotten crisis.

London Fire Risk Assessments supports REFUGYM

In 2016, Brittany Pummell found herself drawn to the refugee crisis in Greece, with a deep desire to assist in this humanitarian disaster so close to home.

There, she worked in camps all over Greece, offering educational aid and community building through active participation. Most recently, she was Field Director in a camp, where she was able to implement her idea of inclusivity and community strength, where aid is available to all refugees.

Whilst she observed that the fundamental needs of refugees were being met – such as food, water and shelter – she noted that there is little to no emphasis on mental health. Refugees have suffered extensive trauma, exacerbated through boredom by being disallowed to work or create normal lives for themselves. Refugees’ mental health suffers as a consequence; yet there is apathy amongst responding actors to address this vital need.

Through Brittany’s encouragement of active participation, a gym area was built as a result of direct requests from a camp community.

The requests came from people wanting to add purpose to their stagnated life in Greece, giving them a goal to work towards and using exercise to help them feel good about themselves.

Wanting to make exercise and feel-good endorphins available to all refugees, REFUGYM was created!

REFUGYM aims to improve the mental health of refugees through the medium of physical exercise.

We will be a mobile gym, bringing sporting equipment and facilitating exercises to every area in Greece where refugees are being accommodated.

London Fire Risk Assessments supports various charities at ‘home’ but this year we are going to extend our support to REFUGYM. This Orpington based charity is run by a young, passionate team that are determined to make a difference to people that don’t have a ‘home’.
