Emergency aid for refugees on Lesvos

Following last week’s devastating fire on Lesvos which destroyed the notorious Moria refugee camp, CamCRAG is asking for your support to help the thousands of people now once again displaced, many of whom have lost all their possessions.

You can donate online at www.kindlink.com/fundraising/camcrag/moriamatch

EVERY £1 DONATION WILL BE MATCHED BY CAMCRAG (up to £5000), doubling your donation with no extra effort from you.

Most of the funds will go to our established frontline NGO partners, with some being used for direct purchases by our experienced CamCRAG volunteers currently working on the island. These vital donations will supply food, shelter, or non-food items such as clothing or toiletries, for the thousands of homeless refugees.

tear gas being used on refugees on Lesvos

Most of the estimated 13,000 displaced refugees are now trapped on a 1km section of the main road along the coast just outside of the capital Mytilini. They have received insufficient water and only one meal a day, if they can make it to the food queues on time. Protests against the building of a new camp, currently under construction by the military, have been met with tear gas and police violence.

Demonstrations are being planned to take place in major European cities next Sunday, 20 September, demanding the relocation of refugees from all of the Aegean islands.
