Story

On 09/09/2020 Moria camp had been completely burnt down and thousands of refugees including families with little babies and children and also pregnant women were seleeping on the streets without food or drink.

After days of sleeping on streets with very little support, most of refugees were moved to a fast-made camp with harsh conditions at the sea front. The camp is located at the bottom of a hill, tents were flooded after two hours rain.

I travelled between 16 - 40 Sep 2020 to Lesvos and supported refugees both inside the camp and at the pavements nearby. I provided food and drink and essential needs for women, children and men. The vast majority of refugees "lost everything in the fire" and the needs were too big. Children were walking without shoes as they had to run from the fire. I bought shoes and boots for a big number of children. I also supported dozens of pregnant women and women with little babies. This includes taking women to hospitals and doctors.

I am currently supporting dozens of families who I recently helped move to flats and I am supporting families by buying children milk and other essential needs.

This is an example of what is left from Moria. A woman is searching inside the ashes

Recently, an increasing number of refugees has been evicted from their accommodation, cut off from cash assistance and left in the streets without access to shelter, protection or proper healthcare. Many of these refugees are extremely vulnerable and in desperate need for support. Many of them have babies or little children. The city squares are filling up with vulnerable refugees, including children, pregnant women, newly born babies, people with severe chronic conditions and survivors of torture and sexual violence.

Following legislation approved in March of this year, people have now 1 month to leave their subsidized accommodations once their asylum status is recognized. Previously they have 6 months to leave their flats. There are no safety measures, no security and many are also facing police brutality and racist attacks while they are staying in the squares.

As the situation of Corona continued and traveling to Greece is on hold, I have been supporting five vulnerable families including single mothers with babies less than one year old who lost their support and their accommodations. I have been also supporting regularly several LGBT refugees.

If you have some capacity, please help me support these families. I am planning another trip in November 2020
