THE STORY:

I am returning to Greece after only 3 weeks back in the states. My heart is with the refugees, and I know I can make a big difference by being there. I'll be leaving today to help run the medical clinic at Moria, the camp where all the refugees have to go to register which takes many days.

Conditions there are dire. People have to wait to be called to wait in line, where they have to stay for days waiting to be registered. They are not given much by the NGOs while they spend their days waiting. Food and medical support is provided by volunteers, as are most of the blankets they receive while they wait in line in the dirt and have to sleep on the ground. Here is a report from a translator working there now:

"Today is the 27th of December. Only those with arrival tickets with the dates 22 and 23 were allowed to line up today. People in line today were the ones who arrived three or four days ago and have had to sleep in the freezing cold. It was freezing by the time we left around 6:30 pm, and UNHCR doesn't even start handing blankets out until 8 pm. There are no places for them to sleep other than the ground or a few tents that don't keep out the cold. People aren't even wearing clothes that belong to them. They are only given a dry outfit after arriving on the boat, and that's what people have."

Imagine sitting in the dust with your spouse and children for days, hungry and cold. I am going to go do what I can to help alleviate their suffering. Anything you would like to contribute will help me while I'm there and I'll share with those in need. My deepest appreciation for your support!!
