The population of Samos has risen dramatically over the last year. Many newcomers to the island have been forced to seek shelter in areas not fit for purpose, particularly in forested areas that are now sometimes referred to as “the jungle”. With insufficient infrastructure and amenities, the environment of the island in these areas has taken a significant hit and waste is one of the most visible signs of this. To create a constructive, sustainable and safe space for everyone, we started a waste-disposal project. Martijn, our team leader on Samos island, gave us an update on its progress.
Any contribution helps us in our mission to provide a dignified, innovative and sustainable response to the refugee crisis that benefits both refugees and host populations.
