Challenge

For all of the estimated 7000 people surviving in the grossly overcrowded Moria camp (built for 2500), conditions are unimaginably horrific. The lack of safe and private washing facilities adds to the indignities that women and children, in particular, suffer on a daily basis. Please watch this short video for a clear understanding of conditions inside Moria https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9uC-Vp3nrA Morias washing facility structures are insufficient and unprotected.

Solution

We aim to deliver proper hygiene, a basic right, and restore some form of dignity to those trapped on Lesvos.

Long-Term Impact

We aim to be able to provide up to 250 showers per day. we want to offer the women a safe space, with medical facilities offering to screen and treatment for diseases like scabies and body lice. Helping to stop these spreading further through the camps
