Balkan Sunflowers organises volunteer effort throughout the world, providing the opportunity for non-medical and non-technical people as well as medical and technical professional to participate "hands-on" in the humanitarian relief effort. Their goal is to set up community centres within the refugee camps so as to reestablish a sense of community and normality in the refugees life, by providing a place for social and organisational gathering, schooling, classes, organised sports and many other activities. In the beginning there will also be a need for basic facilities such as toilets and shelter. Volunteers with construction experience will organise materials and work with the refugees to construct these facilities.
