Since the fire of Camp Moria, the Greek island of Lesbos has almost disappeared from public perception. But more than a thousand refugees are still trapped on the island – held in prison-like conditions for months and years. In our center, refugees receive hot meals every day and can take advantage of various assistance offered by our partner organizations, such as legal counseling, language courses, clothing and psychological counseling (all free of charge, of course). Away from the everyday life of the camp, we want to give back a little hope here.

Paréa Lesvos provides an important retreat for refugees and hosts 10 other aid organizations. The center is located in the immediate vicinity of the camp on Lesbos and is visited daily by 200 to 400 camp residents. In Paréa, refugees have the opportunity to take advantage of assistance offered by various organizations. These include the LNOB Ground Team with clothing distribution and laundry service, Medical Volunteers International and Boat Refugee Foundation with psychosocial assistance, Makerspace with a workshop, ReFocus MediaLabs with film workshops, and other actors such as Doro Blancke for language instruction and legal assistance.

The center is run by our Europe Cares team of permanent staff & volunteers from the camp and around the world. In order for the center to continue, we rely on your donation. Together we are creating a community of solidarity on Lesvos. #StrongerTogether

How does #StrongerTogether work?

We distribute the money fairly to where it is needed most. When you donate money to a project, half of the donation goes directly to that project. However, a smaller portion goes into the overall pot of all projects and will be distributed to all projects in the campaign after Christmas.

This means that every donation helps in several places. Fundraisers that go well support those who lack attention despite great need. You don’t have to decide which of the many problems you want to fight with your donation. You can simply choose which project is most important to you and we will make sure that the others don’t go away empty-handed.

Exactly means:

50% of the money will go directly to the project you have chosen and will make a direct contribution to support, protect or evacuate people there.

35% will be distributed to other projects in the campaign should they not meet their fundraising goals. In this way, we ensure that none of the projects, and thus the people who rely on their support, go away empty-handed. In this way, we ensure cohesion among the projects, because we do not fundraise against each other, but with each other. An overview of these projectscan be found here.

15% will go to the LeaveNoOneBehind Emergency Fund. In the past year, we have seen in Afghanistan and Ukraine, among other places, that it is often a matter of acting quickly. Through this Emergency Fund, we were able to launch projects such as the Kabul Airlift or the Ukraine Hub within a few days, helping over 1000 people from thesen countries to evacuate. In addition, we have supported over 100 organizations in the last 3 years. You can find an overview of the grants here.

This is how #StrongerTogether works.

Project overview


1. In principle, you do not need a donation receipt for the tax office for donations up to 300 euros. A self-generated account or online bank printout is sufficient to prove the donation. It is important that your name, the account number and our data as well as the booking date, the amount and the actual execution of the payment can be seen from it. In addition, please keep the simplified donation receipt we have prepared.

2. If you have donated via the donation form: In the donation form you can choose whether we should send you a donation receipt. If you have answered yes to this option, you will automatically receive the donation receipt by e-mail in the spring of the following year. If you need the donation receipt more urgently, please contact us via spenden[at]

3. If you have donated by SEPA bank transfer: Please note that if you donate by bank transfer, we will not have your contact details at first and therefore you will not receive any further notification or confirmation of receipt of the money. However, you are very welcome to send us your contact details after your donation to spenden[at] and also let us know if you need a donation receipt.
