Goal of the event: 
Only in October of 2015, around 219.000 refugees arrived in Greece, trying to escape to Europe. On the borders of Greece and F.Y.R.o.M. huge camps are settled, and people need goods in order to survive.
Short description of the event: 
We organised a trip to Vergina, the place where Philip, the father of Alexander the Great is burried.But we made it a different trip. During registrations Erasmus students didn't have to pay a fee to join the trip but they have to bring goods for Refugees. After the trip we gave the goods together with the erasmus students, and we helped on the arrangement of the things gathered. This action did not stop here, but erasmus students continued to help volunteerily every week.
