Everyday work - Lesbos - RIC Camp

I have been back on Lesbos since December 30th 2020. To ensure everyone's safety, I was quarantined here for another 3 days despite the negative PCR test. After these days, the Corona test I made here in Mytelini was also negative and the daily work began. First of all, I went to the camp with our partner NGO #HomeForAll and had to go to my big ...

Lesbos - cuisine with a big heart

The working day here on Lesvos is stressful, you have to be flexible and yet constant. The heart of our everyday life here is the taverna of Home For All, a small but very efficient NGO whose founders Katarina and Nikos always have the protection seekers in mind with a big heart and full of energy. As a member of an Austrian NGO, it is enormously important to be here in front of ...

I am often grateful and it strengthens us very much in this time of pain.it is strengthening that we receive so much encouragement and real support in the form of money, donations in kind, loving phone calls, sending poems, music, a few comforting lines.heartfelt thanks to you all!

Daily routine and impressions of our daily work on Lesvos

I think it is also important that we make you understand what and how we work here on Lesvos for the people in the #KaraTepe camp. Here, in the new camp near Mytelini, there are currently just over 8,000 people, women, men, children, old people, sick people. There are over 1000 summer tents, which are normally shared by 6-7 people, often 2 families ...

M distributing food parcels in KaraTepe

Terror, no matter who it comes from, affects us all deeply. All of us! All the more important, and probably the only sensible solution, is that we unite, do not give what divides us a chance in any way, also take people seriously with all their fears and remain in dialogue. How much such events leave us stunned, no matter where we come from, is shown by the following ...

Departure to #Lesbos #Moria2 on 30 October 20

On 30 October 20 we, Helga Longin and I, are flying to Lesbos again. We have organised a lot from here, asked for support and received it in various forms. Now I would like to give a rough summary of what we have done so far. We were able to support Home for all, a small but very efficient partner NGO, with the purchase of food, plastic boxes, hygiene articles, etc. We were also able to help with the purchase of food. …

In 2 weeks I'm flying to Lesbos again....my heart is calling!

On 30 October, I will fly back to Lesbos together with Helga Longin and I am very grateful that this is possible. Since I returned a week ago, I have had many conversations and discussions, answered countless questions, some of which have remained unanswered until today. Actually, I would need administrative support for this, please let me remind you that I have done all my ...

Farewell Lesbos - we will be back on October 30th

Perhaps it is good that I did not know the extent of the misery, the violation of human rights, this cruel political activity in detail. When humanity mutates to "rejection", when the whole of Europe thinks it has to talk and argue for weeks about whether we should help or not? When we stare droolingly at the next catastrophe images and it often triggers nothing more than ...
