(English subtitles)

In May 2015, two Arabic languages teachers in Palma de Mallorca decided to offer free classes as the refugee crisis grew. The public response was more than they expected.

Refugees Await Registration in a Camp...

Refugees, who succeed to cross the maritime border between Turkey and Greece are being brought to the Moria Camp near the city of Mitylene, on the island of Lesbos, where the European border agency Frontex identify and screen them, before they may go to the Greek mainland. 

Moria Camp reminds us of a war zone. People are queuing, often for many days. They lie in the mud and sleep in tents because there is not enough space in the shelters. Human rights activists call the camp “Europe's shame”.

When the Spanish NGO Proactiva spots a boat it informs the volunteers on the coast and accompanies the refugees to the inshore. After their arrival they are checked by medics and brought to camps nearby.

Last summer up to 100 boats arrived each day on the north-eastern coast of the Greek island of Lesvos. In winter the number reduced substantially. However the aid groups have a lot to do. The 15 kilometers broad coast is being watched permanently.
