Maria and I will go for 2 weeks (20th of June to 6th of July) in the camp of Kara Tepe on Lesvos Island (Greece) to help refugees. We will be working with the dutch NGO Movement On The Ground. Tasks will be among: work in the warehouse, camp rehabilitation, organization of sports events, teaching, cleaning, food distribution, solar panel installation, etc... Anything to help the people that fled a war zone and are now living in really poor conditions.
The money we are raising is only that the NGO can provide activities and food to the refugees. Maria and I are paying for our travelling, accomodation and food by our own.
We thank you very much for your help and you support.
Maria and Arthur
What is Movement on the Ground’s mission?
We are a foundation responding to a humanitarian crisis affecting the innocent men, women and children forced from their homes by climate change, poverty and war. We identify needs not being met and aim to fill these needs by activating our network of logistical, financial and structural partners to provide these needs thoroughly and without hesitation.
Our mission is to deliver a more dignified, sustainable, and innovative response to the refugee crisis in Europe. We believe that refugee camps should be more inclusive, more self-sustaining and providing refugees with a better quality of life and adaptation process to their new environments. With collaborative efforts with interested corporations, other charities, refugees, volunteers, and donations, we are activating a network that re-defines the global refugee camps.
