Erna, can you hear us calling? Evacuate Moria now!

The fear of the coronavirus is spreading inside Moria refugee camps, while the conditions in the camp keeps getting worse. Daily we receive desperate messages from those with no chance of following the advice given by the world’s health authorities. It is now time to show solidarity with the most vulnerable of all!

When the virus reaches the refugee camps

It is just a matter of time before the coronavirus spreads to the refugee camps. There, crowds cannot be avoided. There is no shop where to buy Antibac – there is hardly enough water.

Updates on the Coronavirus and Our Operations – March 16

A Drop in the Ocean acknowledge that many people worry about the coronavirus in Greece and how it affects the people who live in the refugee camps. This is a particularly vulnerable group and transmission of the virus in the refugee camps will have uncontrollable consequences.

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.
