Up to 7,000 refugees live in the Olive Grove refugee camp and they have limited access to reliable electricity. Most of the power is currently supplied from a diesel generator which is costly and harmful to the environment. Last year, with your support, the Energy for Refugees team installed a solar energy system to a digital learning lab for children in Kara Tepe camp. This July, the team will be heading back to Lesvos to install a system four times bigger than the previous year’s. Their solar power system of 27 kW will be used to provide energy to light the camp at night, to heat water for washing clothes, showering and for charging phones.
They need your help to improve the living conditions of the people in the refugee camps! We invite you to visit their crowdfunding page and donate:
On 8th May they will have an Introductory event in which you can learn more about their project. Find more information about the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2205295322851519/
