Essential Aid

bring hope

Many refugee families have fled war and violence in their countries, and now find themselves living in makeshift tents and shelters with no access to basic needs, struggling to make ends meet. GAiN UK is dedicated to help ease their suffering and help restore their dignity through providing aid and donations collected from our partners and donors.

Currently, our focus is on helping the refugees in Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina, each with its own needs and challenges.

For Greece

We are putting together wash-kits for women which consist of towel, soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitary towels, razors. For children, we need nappies size 4-7

wash kits in plastic bags

For Bosnia & Herzegovina

We need clothes, shoes, new underwear and socks, blankets, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, backpacks, torches, smartphones, mobile charging devices and small camping stoves.

Ways to give

You can drop off your donations at any of our collection points (see GAiN Collection point map on our homepage).  If you are not near any collection point, email us at and we’ll arrange a pick up for you.

Making a difference…Thank you!

Your donations of clothes and supplies will have a genuine impact on the lives of refugees from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and many other countries in crisis. These donations will continue to meet an on-going need as new arrivals continue to enter the camps. As soon as we have collected enough relief supplies to fill one container, we will be sending it off and then gearing up to fill the next one.

Thank you for your part in helping those who have lost so much have a glimmer of hope for their future.
