After the fire: Combating Corona in Moria

Short thesis

I will talk about the situation regarding refugees live situation. Especially after the last fires in Moria refugee camp.


When the Corona pandemia reached Greece and was endangering the refugee camps on the islands we were left alone. We just imagined what would happened if the virus would reach Moria camp. So in the beginning of March we took our fate in our hands and created the MCAT team to raise awareness and since then we did a lot of activties together with the Moria White Helmets and mainly with support from the local Greek organisation Stand by me Lesvos. Luckily camp was saved from the virus in the first dangerous weeks and we continue our work and hope for support and that especially the world will see under what terrible conditions we are forced to live here.
