Movement on the Ground camptocampUS winterization for Lesvos!
Almost 10.000 people have arrived to Lesvos this year the majority in the recent months. The situation is detoriating as temperature is dropping, reception sites are overcrowded and the number of people arriving keeps rising. As certain humanitarian organisations have left Lesvos and some are phasing out Movement on the Ground has intensified the support to the island in the past months by increasing our volunteer staff, having more responsibilities and taking more tasks.
We have started our winterization plans for Kara Tepe together with the municipality and site management a while ago with the implementation of new solar system to more UNHCR isoboxes. Our team of Kara Tepe residents have been working relentlessly the past weeks. A great example of how we see refugees can be part of their self-reliance and support each other in a sustainable way. We expect to complete the solar project soon so more vulnerable families staying in tents in Moria reception site can be moved to Kara Tepe before winter hits in.
We have prepared our 3 Turbo Tent Heaters ready to heat hundreds of people when needed as we did last year in Moria during the extreme snow and winter conditions. With thanks once more to our friends from Loveland Festivals from Amsterdam for their continues support and donation of the hardware.
Our The Giving Food Truck has had some peaceful summer months but it is ready again to produce 1000's of warm nutritious meals for all!
We have 3 high power generators on site ready to be used to support any (emerency) situation in Kara Tepe or Moria with great thanks to our donors Power Solutions N.V. and our Dutch donors from www.ULCgroep.nl en www.Bectro.nl
We have more than a 1000 WakaWakaLight mobile solar lights donated to be handed out in Kara Tepe and Moria
And last but not least we expect to have the two communal kitchens in Kara Tepe operational soon with the support and consult of the Harvard Student Humanitarian Service, Policy & Advocacy Trip to give the people of Kara Tepe the possibility to cook safely and in dignity this winter.
As we believe true humanitarian aid should be innovative, inclusive and inspiring all of this is done according our #camptocampUS philosophy with and together with the Kara Tepe residents themselves, our beloved and trusted colleagues from Because We Carry Foundation, volunteers from all over the world, the Kara Tepe site management and all of YOU that have been donating and supporting us in making the difference for those who need it the most.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you all and hope we can rely on your continuous support the coming challenging months.
With ❤️ and resilience from lesvos, Movement on the Ground. ... See MoreSee Less
