Things are changing rapidly at Lesvos. Right now, after only three weeks, some details in this article (including the information in the diagrams at the end) are outdated. And that’s very good.
The main line and the things to learn however are still important, also forasmuch the future.
Sun has set at Lesvos, while I talk to her on Facebook. She is a Dutch retiree and all afternoon she’s been stretched on her bed on beautiful Petra beach: under a palmtree, with sea views. In the evening they built a fire and roasted chicken. I wasn’t there of course, but her photos suggest this story. And there also was a lot of good news today: help was finally coming! Dutch Stichting Vluchteling announced: “We started giving emergency help in Kara Tepe” and the International Rescue Committee was claiming their arrival as well. But the tone of my conversation with her on Facebook is rather bitter.
In this post you’ll find also: communicationtips for NGO’s, and an overview over who’s doing what and where on Lesvos.
