  • MVI — Medical Volunteers International for letting us use their space in front of the Olive Grove. We were able to make insulation mattresses with the people, closer to where there is the greatest need.
  • Zaporeak for letting us use their van to collect and deliver foam from lifejackets to the Low-tech Makerspace.
  • Attika for providing us with many pallets and clothes/shoes for our team.
  • Movement on the Ground for thinking of us when they had broken pallets.
