Refugees in Greece
This week I started to type up all my thoughts from a trip to Moria Refugee Camp on the island of Lesvos, Greece. I traveled in 2016 to volunteer with a NGO that served meals at the camp. Conditions when I was there were atrocious. The camp was housing 3,000 more people than it was designed for. There was still hope in many of the people.
So with all my free time this week, I decided to catch up on the conditions in Moria. Today the camp is housing 20,000 more than designed for. The refugees are living on the hillsides in small tents. Women and children are in danger of sexual assault. The camp is full of trash and rat infested. I can't see how there is any hope now.
