Summary

Lighthouse Relief (LHR) offers a dignified humanitarian response that extends from the north shore of Lesvos to Ritsona Refugee Camp on the Greek mainland. In 2019, we have seen the highest arrival numbers to Lesvos in over three years. Meanwhile, Ritsona Refugee Camp is set to triple in size in the first months of the new year. Today, we are asking for your renewed support to face these growing needs on the shoreline and beyond, and to help us forge a path through the challenges ahead.

Challenge

Despite plummeting temperatures, increasing numbers of people continue to seek safety on the shores of Lesvos. On the mainland, asylum seekers are waiting for longer periods before they can reach new homes. Vulnerable groups, including children, teens, and young adults, often struggle to access opportunities to build on their skills and resilience. With changes on the horizon, LHR needs your help to support them, and to build capacity in the face of greater needs at the shoreline and beyond.

Solution

LHR is often the first to greet people arriving to Lesvos as they take their first steps on land. In these key initial moments, we provide water and emergency blankets, soothing fears with a warm welcome. Our support does not end here. In Ritsona, our Child Friendly Space and Youth Engagement Space provide a safe setting to explore creativity and untapped potential. By ensuring that LHR has a strong structure in place, these programmes can have greater impact on new arrivals and asylum seekers.

Long-Term Impact

LHR aims to build a humanitarian response that benefits displaced people while supporting local communities. On Lesvos, we work with our partners to provide immediate and dignified aid to arrivals, and carry out environmental projects to benefit the local community. In Ritsona, LHR has a strong basis of trust with residents, carrying out projects that enable children and youth to invest in long-term futures, enhancing resilience so that they can create opportunities and navigate challenges.
