On Friday afternoon 25 May 2018, intense fighting broke out at Moria camp, leaving many people injured. A group of around 70 refugees, including many families with young children and several injured people, fled the violence and found refuge in a park in Mytilini. Some injured people were transferred to the hospital by ambulance. 

This role sits in the Fundraising team within the Lesvos Solidarity (LeSol) team. The fundraising teams’ role is to engage, educate and publicise the work of LeSol to raise vital funds for our work. The Fundraiser works with the fundraising team, board members and the team by helping with communicating about our work to grant making organisations.

Lesvos Solidarity calls for the immediate release of a vulnerable case currently unnecessarily detained in PROKEKA, the prison within Moria refugee camp. His is one of many inhumane and illegal detention cases linked to the EU-Turkey deal.

PIKPA Mytilene began in 2012. It as an open space accommodating refugees and supports vulnerable groups of refugees and locals. It is also a venue for a creative meeting of people from all over the world. Furthermore, PIKPA operates as a support and reception structure in case of emergency.

PIKPA de Mytilène (Lesvos) fonctionne depuis 2012. Il s’agit d’un espace ouvert qui accueille des réfugiés, qui soutient des groupes vulnérables (réfugiés et locaux), et qui, en même temps, sert en tant que point de repère et rassemblement créatif des personnes qui viennent de tout le monde.

Refugees, Greek islanders and activists today called on European leaders to heed their plight in a flash mob on a beach on the island of Lesvos symbolising the spirit of “refugees welcome”, organized by Amnesty International and Lesvos Solidarity.
