In just one day, on March 13, the Aegean islands of Chios, Samos, Lesvos, Leros, Rhodes, Symi, Megisti, Kos, Farmakonisi, Patmos, Kalymnos, and Samothraki registered 2,702 new arrivals of refugees. Refugees are housed in "Hotspots" — EU funded processing centers — and makeshift camps. Leros has a tradition of hosting hard-pressed outsiders — from exiled opponents of Greece’s 1970s military junta to scores of mental patients at the country’s largest psychiatric asylum. With an already decaying infrastructure, Leros is currently one of the hardest-hit islands by the refugee crisis. Leros Solidarity Network (https://www.facebook.com/lerossn) is a local organization that is working around the clock to ease refugees' passage into Greece and the EU. Humanitarian needs in Leros are deep ranging from food to blankets and medical supplies. I will spend a couple of weeks volunteering on Leros and am raising money to purchase supplies locally to support the needs of refugees. Any amount is welcome!
