Recruting volunteer field workers to Lesvos

A Drop in the Ocean are now restarting recruitment of volunteer field workers to Lesvos. We will work in the new temporary refugee camp, Kara Tepe, and are currently in the process of implementing new projects there.

Moria totally damaged

Tuesday night and Wednesday morning on the 9th of September, Moria Refugee Camp on Lesvos burned down. The Greek Government confirms that no deaths are reported, but 13 000 displaced persons are now without a roof over their head and have lost what little they had. Lesvos must be evacuated now!

Moria under lockdown – activity packs for unaccompanied minors

Due to an increase of Covid-19 cases, Moria Refugee Camp is now under lockdown. A Drop in the Ocean fears for the mental health of the unaccompanied minors. Our team on the ground have, among other things, distributed activity packs to keep the children distracted.

Our Purpose

The purpose of A Drop in the Ocean is to provide support for people who are on the run, as well as to spread the word about the current situation for refugees and migrants. Where appropriate, our main focus will be on helping children and their mothers. A Drop in the Ocean was founded in September 2015, and has since then organised more than 6500 volunteers to go to Greece, where the need for help is high.

The Refugee Crisis in Greece Continues

Greece, which used to be a transit country, has now become temporary residence for tens of thousands of refugees. Border controls out of Greece are stricter than ever before. Meanwhile, the influx of refugees by boat from Turkey continues, leading to an increased accumulation of refugees in both official and unofficial camps. They live under miserable and undignified conditions for an uncertain amount of time. There is a great need for aid, and our work in and around the refugee camps has never been more important.
