Update: fires seem out of control. Moria is burning and this means Lesvos is burning and where are all the people now with their talks and promises? We are alone on this island and this fire is a fire in all of Europe but it only destroys our island facebook.com/www.standbymel….. #moria https://t.co/09K2Nt8pWC
People escaping out of #Moria.
We pray that these people will have had enough trauma for tonight as we simultaneously are getting reports of some locals attacking and blocking people's passage into the nearby village. facebook.com/www.standbymel….. | #StandingTogetherForLesvos https://t.co/ADoOMw2wcu
Update: the whole camp is in fire. Everything is burning. People are escaping. Their homes in Moria are gone.
Police just arrived. Telling everyone to get out of the camp.
Zone 12 completely gone. Zone 6 heavily damaged. Several parts of Central #Moria camp gone.
About 35-40% total destruction.
There are still people left in the camp. Also, one of the fires blossomed up again so now firefighters are back at work.
Another project done: locally made & printed awareness waterproof posters in 5 different languages. People from many countries and nationalities worked together to make it possible. MCAT and we want to thank @nothilfe for supporting this project #StandingtogetherforLesvos #moria https://t.co/zO0CAppHPM
“This was zone 12 where most of us lived. We lost everything and it was not much any more. But all of us survived. More soon now we need to help each other”.
