In Camp, we are giving the unique opportunity to serve and love on those who have come from war and poverty stricken country, looking for a safe place. Through our work in camp, we have been able to touch thousands of lives, and ask that you would consider joining us in this effort.
A large majority of the work i58 does in Greece is in the Moria refugee camp, where refugees are held while they go through the process of applying for asylum and before they can be transferred to the mainland. Due to the massive backlog in the asylum process, and overcrowding on the mainland, a camp which would ideally hold people for only a few days has instead become a semi-permanent home to many as their stays stretch into months and sometimes even years.
i58 volunteers help with shelter allocation, non-food item distributions, maintenance, warehouse upkeep, and many other projects in camp. Although numerous jobs are not particularly glorious or fun, countless people are blessed by the work that is done inside camp Moria. Most days in camp are long and tiring; yet additionally contrasted with beautiful moments!
