Operation Refugee Child is run by volunteers and volunteers can contribute their skills in many ways (photography, assembly of backpacks, distribution of backpacks, translation, logistics and support etc.). Operation Refugee Child believes in speaking to refugees in their own language and we always welcome native speakers of Arabic and Farsi. We are now accepting applications for volunteers to participate in a distribution trip to Greece in late June/early July 2016. If you are interested in traveling please fill out the application.
Please see the suggestions below about ways you can be involved with Operation Refugee Child as a volunteer based on where you live.
