We all remember the images of the burning camp Moria. A wave of solidarity went through Europe at that time, since then refugees in the camps are supposed to be deliberately made invisible. . Since 2020, LeaveNoOneBehind has been working with refugees to run a small team on Lesvos that ensures donations reach where they are needed most quickly and efficiently. With our numerous partner organizations or through unbureaucratic projects of our own. In recent years, a community center has been established and donations in kind have been distributed to the camp residents from several warehouses. We responded to the catastrophic hygiene situation with washing machines and shower containers. Today, the LNOB team, together with many partner organizations, is part of the Parea Community Center and offers camp residents a wide range of services: from free clothing distribution, activities such as yoga or film workshops, to medical and legal care.

Next year, the situation on Lesvos will continue to pose many challenges to which our team must respond quickly in order to ensure a minimum of dignity and self-determination for the camp residents. For example, the camp is to be moved to a remote part of the island, which would mean prison-like conditions and complete isolation for the refugees.
It costs a lot of money to run the washing machines and maintain our services at the Parea Center. In addition, we want to pay fair wages to our team members, some of whom are refugees in the camp themselves.

To ensure that refugees continue to receive this minimum level of care, the project needs €100,000 in funding for the next year. We want to raise €25,000 for this by Christmas. Let’s stand together with refugees by supporting the LeaveNoOneBehind team in Lesbos! #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.
