We help the disabled refugees through the Agitos Foundation!

The development arm of the International Paralympic Committee, the Agitos Foundation, is appealing to the global community for their support to help refugees with impairments into Para sport by raising EUR 25,000 for an innovative project. According to the UN Refugee Agency, the UNHCR, aid organisations have estimated that of the more than four million refugees from the conflict in Syria alone, one in five has a physical, sensory or intellectual impairment.

The Agitos Foundation will launch a fundraising appeal on Tuesday (29 November) in aid of a cross-border project in Greece, Serbia and Cyprus which aims to give refugees living in camps and communities life-changing access to Para sport. Donations can be made via Generosity, the philanthropic crowdfunding platform.
