Emergency in Greece

Doctors of the World teams in the Kara Tepe camp, the overflow site for Moria, are currently assessing the damage in collaboration with the camp manager and fire department.
“From Moria to Epano Skala, people who were in the camps are sitting by the side of the road, with the few belongings they could carry, once again fleeing for their safety” said Constantinos Petradellis, MdM Greece field coordinator on Lesvos. “Our fears and anxiety for the victims are growing.” 
More than 12,000 people have been left homeless by the blaze. Our mobile medical unit is currently active outside the center of Moria and our team – consisting of 22 medical and project staff – is assisting with efforts to identify potential victims and assess the needs of those displaced by the fire. Our medical team has also been performing consultations and examining patients on the road, especially pregnant women that are in need of immediate assistance.
In Athens, our staff are preparing an emergency shipment of medicine, medical consumables and non-food items, such as tents, sleeping bags, COVID-19 protective equipment and hygiene kits. They’ve also started planning for a more holistic response to the fire.
Please help our teams respond to this latest crisis on Lesvos by making a donation to our relief efforts today. 
On behalf of all of us at Doctors of the World and those we serve – in the US and in over 80 countries around the world – I send a warm thank you to all who support of our work.
