Lesbos Falafel Project

Raised by 27 people in 32 months
Lesbos is undeniably experiencing an humanitarian crisis. More than 300,000 migrants fleeing wars in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. have arrived in Lesbos this year. Considering the recent events, we can only imagine that the situation will get worst. Residents, tourists and volunteers have stepped in to offer help in the absence of an adequate organized response from the government and the EU. A few international NGOs as well as some local groups of volunteers are operating on the island and their work is of great importance to manage this emergency. However, the needs far exceed the capacity of their staff and more volunteers are requested to travel to Lesbo and help!

From this context originates Welcome Lesbos Falafel, a small independent project which will start operating on Lesbos from December 2015. It is an itinerant initiative travelling around Lesbos, operating in various spots, camps and ports. Its aim is to give a first human and warm welcome to migrants coming from a long and desperate journey with food from their countries: home made falafel

The idea of the project is to connect with more people and invite them not only to become aware of this humanitarian emergency but first and foremost to help refugees and actively support the volunteering operations on the island by continuing our initiative.

You can give a donation for our project so that we will be able to buy food and contribute to the volunteering activities on Lesbos. Goods will be bought directly on Lesbos and Athens as it makes sense in both economical and ecological levels. Furthermore, we would like to support Lesbos economy by buying as much local products as possible .

Or even better, you can travel to Lesbos and volunteer by joining our initiative. You can register by signing up on the Lesbos Falafel Doodle. Your stay can be for a short period of time or for a longer term. It is not much about the duration of time you spend, but rather about your intent to contribute and help which makes the difference!

Refugees in Lesvos undoubtedly need our support. They want their lives back to start building a new future. Greece is just the starting point and the rest of their journey will be long, but we might be able to help them to start it.

Thank you very much for supporting, donating, participating or simply following our activities - it really means a lot to us!
