Moria Refugee Camp Response

A massive fire has devastated the Moria refugee camp, on the Greek island of Lesvos. Described by the BBC as the ‘the worst refugee camp on earth’, it is a facility designed to hold just over 2,000 residents but has been housing many times that number of late. At least 13,000 people are now homeless. “Knowing the limitations placed upon them on the island, we can’t imagine where the people have fled to,” said Crossroads Foundation’s Director, Sally Begbie.

Already, Global Hand has helped match donated clothing (approx. 1 × 20’ container in volume) with one of our trusted partners, who will be driving a large donation of aid down to Greece. We can help place your donated goods to help refugees in Lesvos, too.

If you have goods to donate, from anywhere in the world, we will seek to find partners on the ground who may need them. Email

If you would like to give funding to help, please donate here through our main Crossroads donation conduit. Tax deductibility is available in the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong. Please indicate in the text box that your donation is to support the Lesvos disaster. Our thanks to you all for any help you feel able to give.
