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

Nikos and Katerina are currently the only Greeks on the island involved in charitable activities for refugees. They used to run a restaurant, now they make free meals for refugees. They renamed their former restaurant to Home for All as it allows those escaping war and humanitarian crises to feel at home – even if just for a moment.

After we met Nikos and Katerina, we knew that we had to open our next Good Factory here, on the island of Lesbos. We have partnered with Nikos and Katerina since as locals they know best what to do and where to focus our efforts on.

In their restaurant’s heyday, they were able to prepare several hundred meals a day. Today they could feed even more people – if they had the resources. We’ve added everything up and worked out that preparing one hot meal, including the costs of running the kitchen and delivering food to the camp, costs 3.5 Euro. We’re not able to feed everyone right away but we’ve decided to prepare 150 nutritious meals for orphans every day from your High Five! Donations. We’re now kicking off a fundraiser. You can purchase a meal for a refugee in Moria for just 15 PLN. Refugees face enormous difficulties in their everyday lives but they cannot even begin to solve them as long as they’re hungry. Each meal purchased by you gets us closer to our goal – we would love to be able to feed all 600 orphaned children and teenagers at the camp in Moria.
