Our medical team provides (emergency) health care in the camp on Lesvos. Access to medical care is a human right. We see it as our humanitarian responsibility to fulfil these needs, using our expertise.
Thousands of people reside in a vastly overcrowded camp on Lesvos for months to years. The dire living conditions make people feel hopeless and desperate. Basic facilities are lacking and the camp is highly overpopulated. Under these circumstances, we are ready 24/7 with professional medical and psychological (emergency) care.
Our team of volunteer doctors, nurses and psychologists offer medical care from our mobile clinic. They are supported by interpreters from our ground team, living in the camp. We work as closely to the people as possible: in the camp’s medical area. Being the only organisation working during the evenings, we fulfil a dire need.
Our team provides primary care and acute medical assistance. We see a great variety of complaints, ranging from ordinary flu symptoms to severely ill patients with acute panic attacks.
We work independently, but are always in close contact with other medical actors such as UNHCR, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), Doctors of the World (MdM), IRC and the Red Cross. We keep each other informed about our plans, prevent ourselves from unnecessarily doing things twice, and collaborate if possible.
