Living Conditions in Lesbos, Greece
Since the signing and implementation of the EU-Turkey Statement in March 2016, MSF has witnessed the unbearable human consequences directly related to this abusive and unjust agreement. European political leaders have covered their eyes and carelessly ignored the deal’s fundamental flaws as they boast about its supposed success.
After the the EU-Turkey agreement was implemented MSF suspended its activities inside the hotspot of Moria, in protest of an inhumane agreement that has real human consequences. MSF provides mobile health promotion and outreach at the camp, referring patients to our clinic in Mytilene.
Captured: Portrait of Karon, 31 Years old from Iraq.
Karon, his wife and their two twins are blocked in Lesvos since their arrival on August 2nd, 2016.
“What I have seen in Iraq, I do not want my children to see it again. This is why we left our country, where everything is paralyzed, everything stopped, there is no life…My true dream is that my children will live in a beautiful country, without war, without bloodshed, without any of this. This is the only thing I wish for.”
