Aladin

By on 8. June 2016

Everyday we meet new people who make our job even more rewarding, who make our 15 hours shifts seem like 3 hours, who give us strenght through their stories and joy through their actions.

Today we would like you to meet our dearest volunteer Aladin, who tiredless supports us in our efforts to make the camp a better place to live in, a man whose optimism is contagious.

Aladin, 33 years old,  comes from Latakia Jableh, a beautiful syrian city by the Mediterranean, where together with his wife lead a peaceful life as a physiotherapist. The happy couple were expecting their first child, when armed forces broke into their house, killed her and changed everything for him. He now lives in Moria Camp, Lesbos, Greece and dedicates his time to others. Once working as a healer, now making sure that people stay in line for food, cleaning and serving meals to everyone in need with an open heart.

Greece shuts down Piraeus Port for Refugees

By on 24. May 2016

 


The two weeks which the refugees were given to clear Port Piraeus and move to the camps have passed, so local authorities have started to evacuate.

We can see the fear and the dissapointment in their faces as borders continue to stay closed, the reality of being deported back to Turkey comes everyday closer and the freedom of choice becomes a thing of the past.

“We`ve lost our children`s future in this war. I am sad for the life that they will have as grown men, and i am sad for their childhoods..”

Remas SOS stayed till the end, and our thoughts and prayers will join the people who we`ve come to know and love in these past few months working here. We will continue to offer relief in different camps in Greece, as there is no end in sight for the humanitarian crisis we are living in.
