What is happening?
With the ever-increasing numbers of refugees in Lesvos, conditions in Moria Camp are highly unsafe and inhumane. Our project launched in December 2019. Of the 1156 unaccompanied minors, over 600 children were homeless, sleeping rough in the olive fields next to Camp of Moria with limited or no access to electricity, food, and other basic services and support. Denied medical services, legal support, and shelter, they are exposed to human trafficking, drug abuse, violent attacks, and sexual abuse.
678 minors registered
Tent by tent, structure by structure, the Emergency Support Team searches for the unaccompanied and separated minors in the Moria Refugee Camp and its surroundings.
We distribute an emergency NFI aid pack for each unaccompanied and separated minor we registered that contains:
– Hat, scarf, and gloves
– Long johns/leggings
– Hygiene pack
Over 200 NFI packs distributed
70 family reunification cases supported
