Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world with people hoping for an end to this pandemic that has already killed thousands and threatens to infect more. In the midst of COVID-19, the mission to help refugees on the island of Lesvos, Greece still perseveres.

As of Wednesday, there is one confirmed case on the island and no cases at Moira Refugee Camp. There are no signs of spread at the moment, but the next week will be more telling. With the pandemic, the most recent missions trip to the island has been cancelled as anyone who travels to Greece will automatically be put in a 14 day quarantine. Plans for the May trip are still ongoing, but only time will tell if it will become a reality.

One challenge the island is facing is that refugees are still coming to the island, looking for aid and comfort, but efforts are slowly decreasing as COVID-19 is taking over the lives of volunteers who had plans to go and serve. The greatest need, though, is for improved food distribution, and plans are being made to solve the problem.

In the upcoming weeks, the Refugee Network is asking for continued prayers for Moira Refugee Camp, Euro Relief and the refugees who are suffering under these limiting circumstances.
