On Lesvos, we reached what some would call a milestone, but what we see as a human imperative – 20,000 hot showers taken by residents of RIC Lesvos. These hot showers have been in operation for the last month and are providing some relief this winter. Alongside, we are together with other organisations supporting distributions of important winter NFIs like winter clothes and blankets.
On Samos, we have a strong collaboration with the community and other organisations. We have been able to secure vulnerable shelters from weather conditions with tarps and pallets. Furthermore, we have secured community centre locations, the coming nights, for the most vulnerable of Vathy camp.
In an ideal world, we wouldn’t be needed. And all of these people that we work with and for would have a safe place to call home. In this current reality, we will continue to support with immediate relief, and hope to be able to provide a temporary campUs solution.
Again, we call on the European Union, as we have done and will continue to do, until long-term, sustainable solutions are enforced for people on the move.
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.
