Cars of Hope: Day 2 on Lesvos

Today we visited a part in front of the (Moria, EiE) camp which is officially not supported by organizations or state authorities. The people who live there did not get a place in the official camp because it’s overcrowded. They had to buy provisional tents themselves and have to live beside the official camp.

Primarily families are living here. We met a big family, who live for 1 to 5 months on Lesvos with 18 children and 8 adults (2 of them are pregnant). Now they are waiting for permission to continue their journey.
When we spoke with them we found out that they have a lack of everything. Lucky enough somebody gave them a stove (in which they are burning about everything they can find – like for instance plastic bags and bottles) . This makes them able to cook some food themselves, which is necessary because the food rations of the camp are not enough.
We bought fresh food for them and gave them sanitary products for the women and the babys.
