We are in the midst of a hell realm – a huge fire today inside the camp, one child died, several hundred now without shelter. What else can go wrong ?
Well Covid 19, the medical NGOs talking but still no direct actions to deal with this, the Greek hospital unwilling to address the potential of a disaster in Moria, many military stationed on the island and there is talk of the camp being quarantined, locked down. It will be a graveyard.
There is no personal protective equipment (PPE) available and our team is all over 60 years old and in the high risk category. Dental has shut down. There is a critical shortage of medical workers, medical supplies and medicines.
With a heavy heart we are leaving. The risks are too great for our team. There is absolutely no protections against the virus. I am so sad and so angry, words are failing me now.
Due to this fire there is a need for donations now to shelter people. Please consider donating at https://handsonglobal.org/donate/ via paypal or send a check to 5210 Kerr Dr, Helena Mt 59602. People here are really desperate for shelter, clothing, blankets. Omar, from reugee4refugees, will get them to people, I am leaving all the money we have here for this,
There is a storm raging outside. It is cold and windy. It is unbelievable — the desperation here.
We are scrambling now to get flights out. the borders are closing, Greece is on lockdown with only supermarkets and pharmacies open.
