Lavriou Camp II is one of three unrecognized refugee camps in Lavriou just an hour south of Athens. The people here are Kurdish refugees fleeing from Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Syria who have settled in an area used by the local municipality as a landfill.
The 35 families living at Lavriou II don’t receive any help from the Greek government or NGO’s. Tucked between piles of waste dumped every day by the municipality they suffer from a lack of food, unsanitary conditions, lack of clean water, insect infestations, and overheating in the hot summer sun.
Please help us support the families at the camp at Lavriou. The 35 families need approximately 500 euros per week for food, they need learning material in Kurdish (children’s books and textbooks) so that their kids can learn to read, as well as fans and insecticide.
