Mission

The aim of Starfish Foundation is to provide help to migrants and refugees, especially the most vulnerable including women, children, and unaccompanied minors, who have arrived on Lesvos in what has been called the greatest movement of people and the most serious humanitarian crisis since World War II. Starfish Foundation also aims to help the local community which is suffering from the economic crisis and a decline in tourism.
