Water, sanitation and shelter for people in need.
People fleeing war and persecution arrive in Europe to find themselves living in adverse conditions.
The simplicity of everyday activities, that we take for granted at home, become challenging hurdles in a refugee camp.
We want to change that. That is why we provide clean water, sanitation facilities and safe shelter.
For more than two years we have been working on Lesbos. First in Moria and now in the new temporary camp.
We make sure that refugees have access to clean water.
Water is life. Clean water is vital to live without illness. However, in many places this basic human right is not guaranteed.
We install sinks and taps that offer a clean water supply and adequate drainage.
Beyond that, we construct showers and wash areas to do laundry and wash dishes.
We install, repair and maintain sanitation facilities.
Nowadays, clean toilets are a given. In refugee camps, already a functional toilet is an exception.
We are giving back a piece of normality.
With a pragmatic approach: When something breaks, we fix it. When something is dirty, we clean it. And when there are no sanitation facilities to be found, we build them.
We ensure that a shelter lives up to its name.
We don't build living spaces, but we do make sure that existing accommodation is made acceptable and durable: By providing warmth and electricity - protection from wind and weather. Right now we focus on stormwater drainage to prevent tents from getting flooded during the heavy winter rainfalls on Lesvos.
