NAOMI close to people in urgent need during the pandemy 2020, quickly and unbeaucraticly.
Besides medical care and shelter programs, also a Voucher program was operated by the NAOMI staff and volunteers for homeless families and people without any support from the official Greek and European authorities. People who are expelled from home and camp structures and from work opportunities, people with disabilities and Covid19 infected.
Thanks to our donors and private people, who enabled NAOMI to support and empower and counsel people to find relief and dignity. Every amount is spent to the beneficiaries directly. See the report down…

It is not easy to wish a Merry Christmas this cold and dark year, instead our cry should go out into the round:
FAIR JOBS FOR ALL
MORE JUSTICE AND RIGHTS FOR ALL
More and more people are deprived of the human rights of shelter, medicine and food and education, more people are deprived of fair legal procedures, people are pushed back illegaly.
Lets stay in solidarity!
from Berlin a christmas letter:
Ich singe in der KungerKiezInitiative im Chor
auch mit Geflüchteten Lieder aus aller Welt.
Wir machen einmal im Jahr ein Kiez Konzert und sammeln Spenden. Die letzten Jahre für Respekt für Griechenland und 2020 für NAOMI. Unser Konzert ist diesmal nur zum Mitnehmen auf einem USB-Stick.……l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fkungerkiez.de%2Fgalerie-kungerkiez.html%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR3nrsVCcYWsCYWZCgZwN4QlJSag1SbsUaDf3OnbluSMGER5mNdiRfngq7c&h=AT3Oii1U_l0tVuqLgME-BdRnUXRfOK-AGDlSHB7_J8IzCX2PK5vGeoe-3pB99WSYI4XXXoqGN92W1cXd79ewtNwm5MwFv5b8sMiH0x6kroC_qqOi8qO6woZGeyn9spK3TmCLA2H8Jpci3McDG0f3 Karl-Kunger-Straße 15

songs from all over the world with refugees.
Once a year we do a Kiez concert and collect donations. The last few years for respect for Greece and 2020 for NAOMI. This time our concert is only to take away on a USB stick .……
I’ll get in touch with you for the money … Greetings from Berlin

We cannot allow the truth about conditions in Greek camps to be hidden.
New rules in Greece mean that anyone working inside refugee camps will now be bound by a confidentiality clause which could be used to ban them from sharing anything they see or hear.
This censorship will make it harder than ever to show the terrible conditions people face.
This comes just after Human Rights Watch released a report suggesting that the new camp on Lesvos could be contaminated with dangerous levels of lead, from its use a military firing range. Just days after The Times reported that unexploded mortar bombs and bullets had been found on the site.
New rules like this will make it even more difficult to speak truth to power. NGOs and civil society groups must have the freedom to speak out. Now more than ever, we ask for your help in sharing our updates about conditions in Greece — it is vital we are able to hold authorities to account.
It cannot get worse: Today it stormed, it rained for hours as the 40 mph wind pulled down curtains and fortune shelters. At 16:00 the time gave a short break and the scene was dramatic. A sixteen-year-old girl, alone with her mother, had her tent destroyed, blankets and sleeping bags soaked, as well as her clothes. In another tent a‑year-old woman was sick from the cold. The kids around were dressed in wet rags. Someone was trying to light a fire. Everyone was cold, tired, demoralized. The same people, the same friends with whom only a few days ago we were still smiling and chatting, today they were dark shadows, eyes plague from the struggle of surviving. You know when you’re cold to the bone but you know that you’ll be home soon and you can warm up? Well, that’s what I was thinking while I was there. They won’t get anywhere warming up.
Today it was stormy, it rained for hours while the 40 km / h wind pulled down tents and makeshift shelters. At 4pm the weather gave a brief respite and the scene was dramatic. A sixteen-year-old girl, alone with her mother, had her tent destroyed, blankets and sleeping bags soaked, as well as their clothes. In another tent a woman of barely twenty years old was laying sick from the cold. The children around were dressed in damp rags. Someone was trying to light a fire. Everyone was cold, tired, demoralized. The same people, the same friends with whom only a few days ago we still smiled and chatted, today were dark shadows, eyes bruised by the effort of surviving. You know when you are cold to the bone but you know that soon you will arrive home and you can warm up? See, I was thinking about this while I was there. They won’t get anywhere to warm up.
The safe space was renovated and equipped with a heating system, NAOMI continues next year to support this friendly place for women and children. Thanks to many donors and friends, thanks to a great supporting network and volunteers. NAOMI in partnership with QRT Quick Response Team.
