Summary

This is the beginning of our fourth year in Greece, upholding our mission to provide a dignified, respectful and empowering humanitarian response to refugees. As one of the few independent actors left on the ground, we run emergency response operations on Lesvos and psychosocial support programmes in Ritsona refugee camp. In the coming weeks, Lighthouse aims to raise 30,000 USD: the amount we need to carry us forward into the summer and beyond. We can't do it without your support!

Challenge

With new people arriving on Lesvos every day, and the thousands still stranded in Greece increasingly fading from public consciousness, we are struggling to carry our work forward in 2019. It has now been over a year since many big donors pulled out of the country. For the coming months, we have strong partnerships in place, long-term strategies, and a tireless team fighting for our mission. 2019 is a year with much promise, but we do need help living up to it. Urgently.

Solution

For over three years now we have never ceased our commitment to serve as a lighthouse for those in need. Whether on the shores of Lesvos or in Ritsona camp, our teams have been there as an unwavering beacon of warmth and stability. With your help, we can continue to meet this challenge. We have a successful ECO cleanup programme planned for Lesvos and a wealth of ideas for summer activities in Ritsona. Your support is vital to ensuring that we can carry our plans forward.

Long-Term Impact

In 2018, our emergency response teams on Lesvos assisted around 7,000 people who had made the dangerous Aegean crossing, a 50% increase compared to the previous year - and boats are still arriving. In Ritsona, our programmes are more sustainable than ever, with the new Resident Volunteer programme allowing camp residents to take ownership of the spaces and participate in their development. As thousands are caught in limbo, LHR gives them room to develop their talents and form a community.
