We have a new centre on Lesvos! Last week we signed the lease on a new property within walking distance from the Mavrovouni Camp – the new space where Moria Camp residents were moved to after the fires on Lesvos.
With a total built-up area of 640 square meters and an outside space of nearly 2.000 square meters, our new property is more than double the size of our current centre. That will allow us to continue and expand the various programmes we offer for women, as well as resume and expand the activities of our children’s learning centre (as soon as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted).
During the month of March we will slowly transition to the new property while still keeping the Moria Centre open. Because of this, the laundry programme we are providing for the camp residents will continue uninterrupted.
We are really excited about the move and are looking forward to what is to come at our new location.
This week the organisation Stand By Me Lesvos has been dropping off and picking up loads of laundry for the residents inside the Mavrovouni Camp on Lesvos. Our long-term team members are here working and facilitating the project. As the strict lockdown continues in Greece we are grateful to be able to help in any way we can and are looking forward to being able to re-open our other projects in the near future.
