It was a great journey back to the border 2015. And I got a lot of experience and we did so much together.
It was my dream to help those people that they don’t have any support and are leaving their country because of some problem. All of my us supported each other so we could do the best job possible.
We’re strong together and able to climb every high wall or fence.
Articel in Greek about arrivals in Lesvos.
More than 33.000 refugees arrived on Lesvos in August 2015.
9,464 Refugees arrived in Lesvos in the Week from Friday, August 14 and the night of Wednesday, August 19. (More Statistics here.)
Currently there are around 9.500 refugees on the island. They stay in the overcrowded
Moria detention center, in a provisional camp outside the Moria detention center, in the arrival points Molivos, Sikaminia,Klio and Kaloni.
Solidarity groups take care of them.
An industry using the situation of the recently arriving refugees has grown, selling them everything they need overpriced: water for the double, taxis taking 50€ for every distance, hotels refusing them except if they pay triple the price.
i dont now how to start but i will try, when i arrived in Mitilini the first time to support the refugees and migrants it just felt like i saw my self 6 years ago when i was a migrants myself and left my home,family and friends for a good future.
it was so heart breaking to see people in that situation and i could not help them as much as i want because i know the feeling of being in that situation and feeling helpless and the only thing you want is peace and having a chance for a good future and make your family proud of you.
Today I am happy that i left everything and went to Europe because it was a dream for some years ago. Now i am here at the same place, supporting the people who are fleeing from war and wanting the same thing that i wanted some years ago.
The most important Moment for me in this journey was when I saw the Situation of the refugees at the port. Especially the sick children eating only bread at the port.
it was a hard way to Sweden but im happy now and i living a life that i just could dream about when i was in Afghanistan.
please take refugees in your cars to bring them to the registrazion point in the PORT.
It is now by law aloud !
You have to call the number “100” to register with the police that you are about to transport new arrived refugees to the port!!!!
And dont forget to have always small water bottels in your car.
Thank you and have a good day!
There are so many babies and children on there way to a better future too!!
After a lot of conversations with adults we made a drawing action for
They shared their experiences with us and draw them on paper. In their
pictures we could see escape and the wish for a calm life, with the hope of a fast arriving.
When they asked us if we come back we answered them:
Yes we are going
to be here tomorrow again. But you will already have to travel further on
For sure we will see each user again and hopefully in a better situation.
