How your donations are used to help

As a start, €250,000 are crucial in response to this emergency. This will help us provide food, water, hygiene kits and shelter to the refugees who now find themselves without. On the other hand we provide our employees with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for their own safety. Once these are secured, we will be looking into the best way to provide more stable shelters and solutions on the ground.

How can €10 help? With this amount we can provide two people with water and basic food.

How can €50 help? With this amount we can buy three sleeping bags or two tents as a temporary solution.

Europe’s largest refugee camp Moria and surrounding Olive Groves destroyed 

Multiple fires broke out in the refugee camp Moria, with an official capacity of 2,700 but housing 13,000 refugees. The camp has been in partial lockdown since March and in full quarantine after last week’s COVID-19 outbreak. Years of frustration, neglect, lack of resources and failing EU policy has led to an expected outburst of complete unrest which ignited fires that then spread across the whole camp due to strong winds.

Today it can be confirmed that most of Moria camp and the surrounding areas have been destroyed by the fire. So far, no statement about casualties has been released by officials. The camp is now closed and all 13,000 residents are without shelter.

Due to massive overcrowding in the main camp, the surrounding Olive Groves have been occupied by 7,000 people for the last years. Movement On The Ground (MOTG) has taken an active role in improving the living conditions in this area. MOTG were directly responsible for an area, which hosted 3,000 people. 

The aftermath: The remains of shelters in Zone 4 of Moria camp.
