The vulnerable residents of PIKPA camp are in danger due to their transfer to the new temporary camp in Kara Tepe. The premises of the former PIKPA camp in Neapoli Lesvos was offered in 2012 by the Municipality of Lesvos to the residents of the city for hosting refugees, who were at the time living in the streets of Mytilene or the city’s port. Since then, it has operated as an open, model camp for facilitating the most vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers, providing them with a safe place, psychosocial support and dignified living conditions.
At a time when a new, inhumane camp was re-constructed in Lesvos after a huge fire destroyed Moria camp, all dignified alternatives for accommodating refugees are under attack. The Greek minister for Asylum and Migration Mitarakis announced in the press on Wednesday that the government will close Pikpa camp by the end of October.
The fire that largely destroyed Moria camp in Lesvos is a direct result of the cruel policies of Greece and Europe. For years they have kept people trapped and abandoned in overcrowded island camps in Greece.
Lesvos Solidarity, together with the people who support it, in the context of the effort to strengthen the public health system, offered medical and health equipment to the health structures of the island.
