Help Us Cool the Crisis in Lesvos

Current Campaigns

As the days get longer and temperatures rise, the anticipation of summer grows. But throughout this seasonal change, we are reminded that for displaced individuals, families and children, the onset of summer brings on a different reality.

People who have been forced to leave their homes and live in refugee camps on Greek islands such as Lesvos, face a daunting time during the summer months.

With temperatures often surpassing 30°C and soaring up to 40°C, a lack of natural shading around the camp, and inadequate ventilation of the shelters, the heat becomes challenging and leaves the residents exposed to the elements and vulnerable. Additionally, high temperatures often lead to inadequate WASH sanitation facilities, including toilets and washing facilities which amplify hygiene and safety risks for residents. 

These difficult conditions not only impact the well-being of camp residents but also strain the resources and capabilities of community volunteers, hindering their ability to provide essential support and make a meaningful impact.

Your support can make a difference. Together, we can provide residents with the resources and assistance needed to endure the summer months within dignified living conditions.
