  • It’s with great sadness and a very heavy heart that we today announce the loss of one of our Olive Grove residents. . In the late hours of last night, the 16th January 2020, an unfortunate incident took place between multiple residents inside Moria camp that resulted in our Olive Grove resident suffering an irreversible injury, which he later passed away from. . Our condolences go out to the young man’s family and friends, and we send our strength and support to all of those affected by the incident. . This tragic loss has come at a time when tensions in and around Moria camp are higher than ever before. . We recognise that these kinds of situations are incredibly confronting, and that is why we at Movement On The Ground are doing and will continue to do everything in our power to prevent any more of these incidences from happening. . We will continue to dignify the living conditions of residents, we will continue to provide support to residents, and we will continue to facilitate a peaceful and safe environment for residents – no matter what! . #dignityforall #moriacamp #peaceforall

  • Right now, our brothers and sisters in #Australia are experiencing some of the worst #bushfires in the country's history. The fires have destroyed millions of hectares of bushland, placed wildlife species under severe threat and displaced thousands of innocent people. . So, in solidarity of those affected by the Australian bushfires, we at Movement On The Ground have decided to spread the word on a range of bushfire relief campaigns that have the power to make an impact. . For more details on how you can make a contribution to these campaigns, head to our #linkinbio. . #AustralianBushfireRelief #DignityForAll
  • For many people, the start of a New Year signifies a fresh start; a time when you can set new goals to accomplish over the coming 12 months, better known as ‘New Year’s Resolutions’. . This year, we've decided to set a few ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ of our own, however, we’ve decided to refer to them as ‘Movement Initiatives’. . Basically, a ‘Movement Initiative’ is some sort of action that can help us to become a better, more ethical and more sustainable Movement On The Ground, and by the end of 2020, we want to reach 2020 ‘Movement Initiatives’! .

  • It’s a truth universally known that a clean living environment makes for a healthy living environment! But, when allocated garbage trucks don’t make a regular trip to collect waste, things get smelly, and that’s what unfortunately happened in the north section of the Olive Groves outside Moria camp. . So, in true MOTG style, we took matters into our own hands! Over the last few days, our Olive Grove coordinators, resident volunteers and visiting volunteers banded together to clear and appropriately dispose of the amassed waste. . The result? Hundreds of bags of rubbish collected and a group of residents that can literally breath easy again as their living zone is rubbish free. . #camptocampus #dignityforall #wastemanagement #teamworkmakesthedreamwork
  • As we countdown until the New Year, we want to take this time to extend our thanks to you, our Movers, for the support you have provided us over the last year. Without your contributions and encouragement we would not have been able to invest in the residents of the refugee camps on Lesvos and Samos. . 2019 was a huge year for us at Movement on the Ground; we experienced many uplifting moments, many challenging situations and of course, many changes, but overall, we have become stronger as an organisation, and we plan to take this energy into 2020! . So, as we wave goodbye to 2019, we want to take this time to reflect upon the biggest actions of the last year. . Head to our #linkinbio to read all about what we achieved in 2019. . #camptocampus #newyear #dignityforall
