Moria is a transit camp and registration point for refugees arriving on the island of Lesvos from Turkey. Better Days for Moria is a group of individuals who have come from far and wide to improve the humanitarian situation in the camp. We have set up our own services right next to the official registration camp: a place to make people feel welcome and to give out aid such as dry clothes, food and hot tea.
We are one of the many grassroots operation groups working in Lesvos where everyone takes the reigns collaboratively. Our progress has been impressive and inspiring – we have come so far since the disastrous situation in October! The common goal among the volunteers is to bring a sense of humanity and care to the difficult journey these people are experiencing. We are always looking for more good souls to join our team.
BDFM was built on the olive grove in response to an immediate crisis, however it is not the most ideal location for a long term camp, since Moria was converted from an open to a closed camp. Due to this, the decision was made to pack up the camp and then keep everything in storage till we’re ready to build it up again somewhere, either on Lesvos or on the mainland.
Better Days for Moria is currently undergoing maitenance and CLOSED for now.
Stay tuned for updates.
