The Hands On Global team is still on the ground in Greece working at the new Kera Tempe Camp which houses close to 8,000 refugees. The conditions here are bleak: limited toilets, summer tents, cold water showers from a water bladder, no electricity.
The worst is for those isolated by COVID. The isolation area is deplorable and inhumane. These patients are given a small private tent, a sleeping pad, blanket and some hygiene items. There is no electricity and no running water. Their MRE meals are handed in 2x a day.
This GIVING TUESDAY – December 1, 2020, we are raising money to improve the isolation area. We have already arranged for a hot meal to be delivered daily from an NGO here. We would like to provide radios, batteries, snacks and whatever else we can to improve this isolation area. COVID ISOLATION compounds their PTSD traumas.Their mental health ,along with their physical health, deteriorates quickly.
