Lesvos. Greece. March 6, 2020. Statement by Attika Human Support about the current situation on Lesvos.
Originally published by Attika Human Support Facebook page.
As we begin to process the shocking events of recent days on Lesvos, we are uplifted, inspired and strengthened by the huge outpouring of support from our global family, by the 20,000+ humans in Athens and in Thessaloniki whom have protested in solidarity with refugees and by the local people of Mytilini who continue to come to the warehouse to collect supplies to share with those less fortunate on our beloved island.
For almost five years, people fleeing war and persecution have been arriving to the Greek islands. For almost five years, local people from the islands and many others from afar have shown compassion.
We are determined to continue to do our best to bring some hope and dignity to the people in Moria camp, to the people on the beaches and to the wider Lesvos community.
We will continue to stand in solidarity with love and care for our fellow humans and stand against extremism, hostility, violence and separatism in any form.
As we continue to maintain our operations, we send our gratitude to all of you whom are standing with us, with the decent and compassionate Greek community of Lesvos and with the community of refugees sharing this island.
Thank you for encouraging us to continue.
We need you now more than ever.
With love from Attika family.
