Greece is in flames!

Greece

In 2015, 856,000 people passed through the Greek islands, and in 2017 and 2018 only just under 30 thousand (according to UNHCR). But 2019 brought already a growth – over 60,000 newcomers. Today, boats coming to Greek beaches are back again, and practice shows that you can get stuck in Lesbos for a good few years. Nikos and Katerina run a small restaurant on the island, where every refugee can feel at home and eat a meal for free.

Overview:
  • There are currently over 2200 refugees in the Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos
  • At least half of them are children
  • Since the beginning of 2015, nearly 1 million refugees have arrived in Europe via the Greek islands

Greece is in flames! For several days now, fires have been consuming the forests on the island of Lesbos, threatening further villages. And although at the moment the flames seem to be under control, the situation is still serious.

Can you guess who is helping the firefighters? You probably won’t be surprised to learn that Katerina and Nikos, along with their entire team of volunteers, are, as usual, right where they need to be. Six years ago they were close to the terrified people who were emerging from the icy water on the Greek beaches, fleeing war and danger. For the past years, they have been feeding the residents of Europe’s largest refugee camp – mostly women, children and senior citizens. They have also been helping the Greek people by responding to every sign of poverty.

Today, they are not only supporting the firefighters battling the gigantic flames, but are also on the ground with them. They are bringing them water and meals so that they can hold back the fire for as long as possible. If you can – send them a few words of support or send the news out into the world that they are truly the humble heroes of this fight!

Urgent help needed

Warm Package for Ukraine

We are providing humanitarian aid on site because the lethal danger is not only the falling rockets, but also the cold. Sleeping bags, warm blankets, paraffin lamps, rocket stoves, heaters, thermal clothing and high-energy meals: these are all things we are taking to Ukraine.
