Helping refugees together

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 about 7 000 refugees in the Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos
  • At least 2,000 of them are children under the age of 10
  • Since the beginning of 2015, nearly 1 million refugees have arrived in Europe via the Greek islands

12.05.2021

There are more than 7,000 people in Europe’s largest refugee camp today. About 1,800 of those are children, of which nearly 1,250 are under the age of 12.

For a brief moment, Moria 2.0 was a little less cramped as some 1,500 refugees were sent to Germany, but at the end of April residents of Kara Tepe, a recently shut down camp on Lesbos, were relocated here. As a result, the site is yet again filled to capacity with tents.

Basic necessities are still in short supply and conditions are incredibly unsafe for children. Families with small children have been camping here in abominable conditions for months.

Katerina and Nikos from Home for All work with volunteers to prepare 1,200 meals a day, seven days a week. Diabetics, sick people and those in quarantine receive special meals. The team also provides packages with diapers, substitute milk, blankets and clothes for infants. The scope of their support is enormous but it’s impossible to list everything they do and every day brings new challenges. We listen to residents’ needs and respond appropriately by providing assistance tailored exactly to them. We hope to restore their dignity and help them realize that they have true friends in this world they can rely on.

Friends like you! Show that you care, that you’re there for them by making a small donation. 15 PLN is the price of a warm meal. Add another 15 PLN and your donation will go towards our efforts in fighting for their right to a safe shelter.

Half of the amount we raise through the ongoing fundraiser on our homepage will go to legal help for those who, having fled hell on earth, have yet to find a place that will welcome them.
