Last week, 80 residents of the Kara Tepe campUs on Lesvos received news of their relocation to Germany. For these men, women and children, this announcement was long-awaited and received with an overwhelming amount of joy and hope. Amongst this group, some spent years on the island of Lesvos, waiting for the promise of a new home and the start of a new chapter in their lives.
It feels incredibly heartwarming to be able to share this news and we are excited about the opportunities that await these human beings. For us, saying farewell was bitter sweet as each and every person left an enlightening impact on our mission and us as individuals. From them, we have learned the true meaning of resilience, patience and determination, and we feel incredibly fortunate to have welcomed many of these people as a part of the MOTG family.
But as we bid farewell to those about to embark on a new journey, we continue to see the arrival of humans forced from their homes to the Greek islands. Last week, our team met with over 30 newcomers in the Kara Tepe campUs, all seeking a new, safe place to call home. We promise to stand by them, to work with and for them and provide them with on the ground support until they too can embark on the next chapter of their lives.
