We are now witnessing the highest levels of displacement on record. An unprecedented 68.6 million people around the world have been forced to flee their homes. There are 10 milliom stateless people who have been denied a nationality and access to basic rights. Since 2015, when the refugee crisis reached its peak with an upward of 5000 people arriving daily to the Greece, people has continue arriving almost every week. According to UNHCR, nearly 60.000 refugees remain stuck and spread out between the three-main island – Lesvos, Chios and Samos – and the mainland where they face abhorrent conditions in the camps.
Refugee4refugees works on the front-line of this crisis since 2016, and it is currently running different projects on the island of Lesvos and Samos. Their aim is to become a leading organization in humanitarian response while empowering refugees and inspire other people on their journey. Between February - April 2019 I was reponsible of their communication in order to spread their work and show the ongoing situation on the islands.

Cleaning Samos Refugee Camp
There are more than 5000 people stuck in the refugee camp on Samos Island, Greece. The number of refugees has rapidly increased in the last few months and most of the people live outside of the fences of the camp, a place known as “the jungle” where they face really poor hygiene conditions. Without the support of organizations like Refugee4refugees and the help of some people from the camp, the situation would be even worse. | Filmmaking
