Over 50,000 refugees have arrived by sea at the Greek Agean Islands of Lesvos, Samos, and Leros in 2019 – a significant increase from 2018. Currently, there are 14,000 refugees in the Moria Reception and Identification Center, on Lesvos Island, which is a camp built to hold about 3,000 people. The situation is dismal, and, as you might imagine, even the most basic needs such as water, food, hygiene, and shelter are stretched beyond the limits.

MedGlobal and Kitrinos Healthcare, our sister organization, have the only acute care clinic in the camp. We need primary care volunteers (FPs, internists, ER doctors, FNPs) as well as nurses for this clinic. 

A one-week stay is a minimum, but longer stays are suggested. Translators are available, however, Urdu, French, and Arabic fluencies are welcome. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact volunteer@medglobal.org. If you have questions about the deployment, contact Dr. John Kahler at kahler@medglobal.org.
