Pray for the safety of people at risk on Europe’s borders.

This winter, the expected harsh weather conditions will make survival very difficult for people living in the new camp on Lesvos, known as Moria 2.0. The camp, which was built right next to the sea, floods with every rainfall. A few days ago it snowed, leaving the migrants to experience severe cold since there are no facilities or infrastructure for heating in most of the camp.

At the same time, many people continue to cross the sea borders, even in the heart of winter. Some have been forcibly and illegally pushed back to Turkey by the Greek Coast Guard and FRONTEX. Others have been shipwrecked and lost in the waves of the Aegean Sea. Those who managed to reach a Greek Island are at risk of losing their lives from the cold, like the 30-year-old Somali man who died on 18 January 2021 on a secluded shore in Lesvos after his boat reached the land.

Pray for a safe haven for all who need it in this inhospitable land called Europe.
