Summary

Lighthouse Relief (LHR) offers a dignified humanitarian response on the north shore of Lesvos and Ritsona Refugee Camp on the Greek mainland. In 2020, refugees and asylum seekers in Greece faced unprecedented challenges, with increased tensions on Lesvos and the threat of COVID-19. These factors forced us to pause in-person activities in both locations. Today, we are asking for renewed support as we plan for restarting our operations at this crucial time. Help us to forge a path ahead.

Challenge

In the past months, escalating tensions on Lesvos and strict restrictions around COVID-19 have forced many NGOs, including LHR, to pause in-person operations in Ritsona and Lesvos, limiting access to vital services for asylum seekers. Cases of Coronavirus in Ritsona left residents in strict quarantine, with children and teens lacking access to informal and formal education. LHR needs your help to restart our operations and provide psychosocial and emergency support in the face of greater needs.

Solution

LHR has provided a warm welcome to new arrivals on Lesvos, and safe spaces for children and youth in Ritsona, until we paused in-person programming. This project will ensure that LHR can sustain our teams during the restart period, as they adapt programming to social distancing measures and purchase vital supplies such as PPE and hygiene materials. In a time when support for vulnerable displaced populations is most needed, this project aims to enable a swift return to crucial relief operations.

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.
