Suspending the Cooking and Conversations Program

Dear supporters of Movement on the Ground,

We are sending you this report as a temporary conclusion of the Cooking and Conversation program on Lesvos in 2019. As you may have gathered from our previous update, the situation on the island is extremely critical at the moment; the refugee camps house over 10.000 people and new boats are arriving every day. That is why we have decided to suspend the community kitchen program until further notice and focus all our efforts and resources towards emergency response.    

In 2019 the Cooking and Conversation program was active on Lesvos. With the support of you and other donors, we kept the community kitchen in the Kara Tepe CampUs up and running. This kitchen provided refugees with a space to prepare their own meals and share them with one another, something which – sadly – is a luxury in the refugee camps. 

We are very grateful for your donations! Through your donations, we were able to make a real difference in the lives of refugees on Lesvos. But even though the Cooking and Conversation program will no longer be active (hopefully we can restart it again in the future), we still need your help in these trying times. We will soon set up a GlobalGiving fundraiser for our emergency response, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, you can always donate via our website. Once again, thank you!

With warm regards and gratitude,

Team Movement on the Ground
