The refugee crisis in Europe remains dire.
Boats are still arriving. Tens of thousands of refugees are still stranded in Greece. As a result of the EU-Turkey statement in March 2016, they are living in hotspots and camps in substandard, often appalling conditions, with little access to information or agency over their futures. Many have been separated from family members and are at the mercy of a slow and oversaturated asylum-seeking process.
Refugees have undertaken perilous journeys to escape conflict and untenable conditions. They cannot go back and cannot move forward. They remain in limbo, with limited access to basic human rights such as education or access to the labour market.
Now, more than ever, they need our support.
We founded Lighthouse Relief on the shores of Lesvos. We are still there. With the closure of the borders and shifting political landscape, we have adapted, expanding our operations to mainland Greece and working to provide both emergency relief and long-term support to vulnerable people.
We urgently need your support to continue our work.
