  • A shout out to our visiting #volunteers! 🙌 . They play a key role in helping us improve the living conditions of the people residing in and around camps on Lesvos and Samos. . Our visiting volunteers are nothing shy of #determined, #hopeful and #hardworking. They come to work everyday ready to put their helpful hands and full hearts to good use. . Alongside their hands and hearts, our visiting volunteers also bring in necessary funds that help to cover the costs of our ground activity – and we are often blown away by their fundraising efforts! .

  • What an honour! 🤝⚽️ . Today, our dear friends and partner, the @cruyfffoundation, visited our Olive Groves outside Moria camp on Lesvos. . Late last year, we, together with the Johan Cruyff Foundation, applied for a grant from the @postcodeloterij which resulted in an award to build three sporting courts (two on Lesvos and one on Samos) and continue our sports program for the coming years. . The impact that has resulted from this grant is the reason why the Johan Cruyff Foundation visited us today. It was a great honor to also welcome Susila Cruyff, the daughter of Johan, who is not only continuing her father’s legacy but also fulfilling the foundation's mission of providing sporting opportunities for hosting and hosted communities. . We are thankful for the Johan Cruyff Foundation's support and alongside them, we are looking forward to bringing more #dignity, #support and #relief to the people on the Greek islands. . #camptocampus #sportforall #football #dignityforall

  • 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
