Dirty Girls is involved with the collection and washing of clothes, dirty blankets and sleeping bags and their distribution in the Lesvos and mainland camps where there are no real washing facilities.
Young and old and somewhere in between, over 1,000 volunteers from over 20 countries have joined Dirty Girls in Greece.
We no longer encourage volunteers as work is done either by refugees, volunteers assisting from other organizations and by employed laundry workers.
Many continue to become Dirty Girls with their financial support. We can’t function without them. Their support allows us to say yes, when no would mean materials would be trashed rather than washed; when no would mean that we couldn’t help provide the dignity of cleanliness, warmth and protection.
Dirty Girls are everywhere! And you can be one too.
