We can’t do this alone, so having a few on-site volunteers brings the manpower we need to reach out and support aid groups across Europe.


$5 a month pays for a day of volunteer housing in Belgrade. To say thank you, one of our on-site volunteers will send you a postcard every now and again to let you know what they’ve been up to.

About

Our Mission

Distribute Aid is a non-profit NGO, developing an online platform for grassroots refugee aid groups. The platform features different tools for groups to use and aims to increase their efficiency and impact by helping them manage their inventories, collaborate on aid shipments, connect with other groups, and share knowledge. The Distribute Aid HQ is based in Belgrade, Serbia, which is close to groups in the field and provides access to major refugee hotspots across Europe. Our goal is to help get more aid out there, easier, faster and to the people who need it most.

Our co-founders, Sara Lonegard and Taylor Fairbank, have spent extensive time volunteering within the refugee aid sector. In the summer of 2018 they travelled to 7 different countries across Europe, meeting over 30 refugee aid groups. During this time, the organisations they met identified inefficiencies in collecting and shipping humanitarian aid as a major problem that prevented aid groups from reaching their full potential. This research determined the need to implement a logistical solution and, from this, Distribute Aid was established.

Your Support

By becoming a Distribute Aid patron you will support our team, help us continue to develop the Distribute Aid platform, and join a community of people who care about newcomers. As a Patron, your contribution will allow for the sustainable development and long-term continuation of the organisation. This includes paying for servers, databases, and necessary design and development tools. Patron funding also lets us provide accommodation on site at our HQ in Belgrade. We are a volunteer team, so this minimises personal costs and allows us to work full time on Distribute Aid projects. Most importantly, all of this means that refugee aid groups will be able to use our tools for free, increasing their reach and impact.

Truly, thank you for your support. Together we can build critical infrastructure to help displaced people around the world.

Goals
53% complete
Our next goal is to provide accommodation for our volunteers at our HQ in Belgrade, Serbia. We have a team of 4 full-time people on site this summer, and expect to maintain those positions in the future. No one on the Distribute Aid team is paid a salary, so this will help offset the personal cost of volunteering. It means that our volunteers are less stressed, and can stay longer in these important roles!
