Ready to come into action? Go with GAiN to camp Moria on the Greece Island of Lesvos. Thousands of refugees, families and children, living under circumstances that are inhuman and unbearable. The camp is overcrowded, there is a shortage of places to sleep, blankets, clothes, shoes, and the hygienic and sanitarian situation is a disaster. People are sleeping in thin tents, cold, wet, stressed and in despair.
Join us on this trip to Camp Moria, where the situation for thousands of families has become inhuman and unbearable. The camp is overcrowded (in a camp for Max 1,500 refugees now live more than 7,500 people), there is a shortage of sleeping places, blankets, clothing and sanitary facilities. People have to sleep in thin tents, are cold, wet and despair near.
Ready to get your hands dirty?
During this trip, we are offering practical assistance to our partner organization Eurorelief, who tries to keep the camp live able with man and power: hand and span services, the distribution of goods, helping / answering of questions of refugees, cleaning jobs, clothing distribution etc. So you really are standing with your feet in the mud.
Furthermore, GAiN is in a special way through the organization of activities in the camp; Activities for children, young people and women. We want to spread light in an environment that is dark and obscure. Your help is really desperately needed! So many people, so much distress, so much injustice, but by being there and serving, you make their world a bit more beautiful for a moment.
At least every month we try to organize a help trip to Lesvos / Camp Moria. But due to rapidly changing circumstances, we cannot report any specific journey in advance. If you are interested in a special month, please let us know via the mail.
