«I like everything here. It’s nice to come here and talk with the other women. I like the volunteers here.» – Halz, resident in Skaramangas
The situation on Lesvos is different than some of you might have experienced in 2015 and 2016 when it comes to arrivals. The number of people arriving to Lesvos is increasing in total, which is why boat spotting is crucial. Although, since the beginning of this year there have been several boats trying to get from Turkey to Greece. A lot of the boats get picked up by either the Greek or the Turkish coastguard, and then arrives at Lesvos with them or they get sent back to Turkey.
